a touch of country

2012 came in like a lion for me and laid me up the last three days with the mother of all head colds. Hopefully this isn't a sign of what the year is going to be like.
The only advantage to being sick ishaving all the time in the day to surf the internet for various inspriation.
A family friend is renovating her home and is including a barn door between two rooms and it sparked my interest. I had seen an image on Pinterest before of something similar so I decided to dig deeper and found loads of inspiration!






I have to say I love the look but I fear this would be a pricey element to add to a room. Not sure my DIY skills are quite where they need to be to create one of these beauties!

Is everyone else back to work today like me? Here's to hoping it's a quick one!

These are so pretty, but you are right I'm sure they are pricey!

I'm back to work tomorrow, and am seriously dreading it. 2 weeks off has been way too much fun.

Everyone has had the head cold. Boo! I think it's this wacky weather we're having.

Sorry you were sick for the new year... no fun. I've had a head cold for about 3 weeks now... can't take much in the way of medicine so this bugger seems to be lingering.

Got your bday card in the mail... hee hee. Super cute. Made me smile! Still blows my mind to think that my next bday will likely be spent chasing a tiny person around the house...

Such a cool rustic look! I might have to snag my dad's skills for something like this:-) Took a woodcarving class in high school...made a shelf and a bird. That's about the extent of my carpentry skills! xoxo
