A little house love

I don't know if I've mentioned the barn door around here, but I had big plans for a barn door! It took some convincing for Alan to get on board for this project but I won him over eventually (I always do). So thanks to my favorite website (craigslist) I was able to buy the barn door and track from someone out in Olympia who didn't know what they'd be missing out on when selling this bad boy. Little did they know that if your brave like me you can use a barn door...indoor. Instead of your traditional french doors leading into an office, in our house you get this...




Believe me, I realize that this is not for everyone, but it's sooo me. I'm really very in love with it...can you marry a barn door? No, Alan may have a problem with that.


My other true house love is my new fabulous dining room lights. I can't even put into words the deep joy these bring me...deep joy I tell you! I've wanted/coveted/lusted after these lights for 5 or 6 years now. They are now mine and I stare at them all the time, but then my eyes hurt so I have to look away. Now you may have the pleasure of staring at my beauties...




Just don't judge my crusty table to harshly. I have pictures to take and blogs posts to write, there's no time for scrubbing tables around here!

What in the world made you think of that? It looks great! I have absolutely no imagination when it comes to decorating, not to mention I am not brave at all. Heck, I can't even decide where to hang stuff, much less envision a barn door. Nice job!

I am in love with your barn door as well! You are one of the few people who can pull that off! You really should have your home in better hoomes and garden! That's the coolest thing ever! Please say you'll help me someday when we get a home!
