A Barn Door For The Closet

I've been in the process of redoing the Master Bedroom at the farm. If you missed it, you can read about it here and here.

I ordered the rug from Ballard Design and it came in last week. Then I had to patiently wait for this past weekend to take it up and put it down. It is just what I had envisioned! Isn't it pretty?




 At Home Depot, I found this back in the closet door area:


Yep! Barn door hardware at very reasonable price. It went into our stack of things going up to the farm.

On Saturday, we went to get the lumber for the closet door. (Have I mentioned how awesome my Bruce is?). We talked over the size of planks, type of wood, and how rustic I wanted the door. We figured it all out and picked out the boards we needed. Then we went to the hardware aisle to look for a handle. Hm, the style I liked was huge. "Let's go to Braly's and see what they have", I suggested. So we drove over to Braly's (the local hardware store- so cool! It's in an old school building but I digress) where I found the perfect handle for the door!


Upon getting back to the farm, Bruce went to work - measuring, sawing, and building!



He added the header for the hardware:


 Now I have this:




I love it! It's just what I wanted. To figure out how to finish it, I gathered up several of the leftover board pieces. I'll try out different looks and share them later.

How do you think I should finish it?

  1. Oh Cecilia - this is just gorgeous ! I had no idea Home Depot had the tracks - I'm going to take a look because they're very expensive anywhere that I've looked !
    Bruce did a fabulous job on this and I love the hardware you chose - it's just perfect.
    And that carpet?
    Yup - I want that too !
    Thanks for letting me know about this

    1. Thank you, Suzan! Home Depot has several choices on their website but the black is in stock ($149!). Love it, it turned out perfectly and I can't wait to finish it. I'm finally done with the big portrait commission so now I can play!
      The rug is available in different colors...I think they have it in white and black. :-)
      Hugs!

  4. It's awesome!!!! I've been patiently waiting for you to share. I didn't know Home Depot had the kit.. I'll check it out and show this to the hubby so he can see yours. The master bed and bath are next on our list if we ever finish the kitchen. I think the door would look great stained or painted and distressed. Can't wait to see what you do with it! Oh...and I LOVE the rug....perfection! Have a blessed day!!

    1. Oh Vicky, it's so hard to have to wait to do things there and this time it was three weeks before we were able to go. I kept looking at my rug then my plans for the door and was about Bessie myself...lol. I'm finally done with the commission so now I can play!
      Blessings to you too! :)

  5. Well, first off- I LOVE that rug- it is perfect in your room. Don't you just get a little jolt of "happy" everytime you walk in and see it?
    LOVE that door, too. My sil and daughter put one in their pantry and it just adds so much . Yours is the perfect door for that closet. xo Diana

    1. Diana,
      I get more than a jolt of happiness! This room feels so cozy and warm now - we've come a long way from an air mattress on the floor! :) Everything is really coming together!

  6. I have wanted to do this in our bedroom and kitchen *forever*, but the thought of finding the brackets and hardware has put me off. Home Depot??? No way! Yours looks amazing and now I am emailing your post to the hubby and maybe I will be getting my own barn doors soon! :)

    1. Yes! Home Depot...look back in the door section not the closet shelves section. They have them on the website too if you can't find them in the store. I am in love with mine! :o)

  7. Cecilia, hubby did a great job on the door ! At first, I thought maybe paint it white to match the baseboard, but looking around the room, I think it would look better as a darker shade of gray to match the new rug. Maybe distress it to look like old weathered barn wood. Can't wait to see what you do!

    1. Patty, I'm hoping I can make it look like old weathered wood. If that fails, there's always paint. :)

  8. Add me to the list of people who didn't know about those kits. That's such a beautiful door Cecilia, and yes, your Bruce is awesome!

    The rug is beautiful. Love Ballards!

    The room is coming along so nicely. You must be enjoying the process immensely, and I'm enjoying living vicariously through you!

Farm Laundry Room Wall

This weekend I got the laundry room painted - walls, trim, and shelves. Yay!! It looks fresh and bright.

And because I got all the painting done, I was able to get the accent wall done ( thanks to my husband for his help!). When I began planning, I wanted to do something to the walls that would give it some interest. I thought of beadboard or a rough plaster texture but I wanted a more rustic look. Rough wood planks (as in old fence pickets) or what I really, really wanted was rusty tin. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough old fence pickets or somewhere to get rusty tin for either option.

I had just about decided to go with beadboard when I just happened to mention the rusty tin idea to one of my sisters. She said she knew where she could get some, so how much did I need? Yes! I quickly measured, told her, and in a few weeks had some tin panels. Perfect...only they weren't rusty. She told me the rusty ones were too far gone so she decided to bring me these. Ok, I can rust them…

Thanksgiving sign

I can't stand it...I was going to post this next week but I'm dying to show it off! I know, I know, now I will have to come up with a new post for next week. That's ok. I'm having fun with this and so enjoy it. You make it so much more so! So thanks for reading and leaving comments. I am thankful for you! Anyway, here's my farm mantel post:

My mantel needed help. Everything I placed there got lost against the brick. Painting it isn't an option - that was voted down very emphatically! However, I painted the trim around the fireplace to match the surrounding walls and ah, that looks better - blends instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.



 Also, it doesn't quite line up with the fireplace. Or the fireplace isn't centered on the wall. Who designed this anyway?! I can't tell you how many quirky things we've found in this house. I think it's  called character! ha.

To help it look better, I decided it needed a wooden sign. I picked a favorite sc…

Cozy Christmas Farmhouse at The B Farm

Hello my friends! Today I'm sharing The B Farm all cozied up for Christmas as part of the Cozy At Christmas Blog Tour. It's five days of Christmas goodness - I hope you will pop over and visit the other ladies. I'll share the links at the bottom of my post.

This year, I'm crazy about plaid! What? You too? To me, it just says "cozy" and "homey".

To begin, I dressed the table with red plaid placemats and red napkins from Audrey of Timeless Treasures. The plaid stockings are actually silverware holders my friend Susan gave me a couple of years ago. So cute!
The red pillows on the bench were wrapped with red and white plaid ribbon. They remind me of presents! The green plates with pinecone motif were a Good Will find many years ago.

Then in the kitchen window, I hung some crocheted lace also from Audrey. It's not plaid but it says farmhouse cozy to me!

Isn't it pretty?

The cute red and white checked apron (another wonderful item from Audrey) han…
