Okay, y’all. I was reeeeally hoping to have the DIY project I told you about done in time to publish a post about it today, but I’m not *quite* finished, so it’ll have to wait til Monday. I love the way it’s coming together, but I ran into a couple unexpected “detours” along the way, as usual. 😉
In the meantime, I snapped a few Bungalow Barn progress photos with my cell phone today so you could see a few of the fun things that are going on in there right now.
First up, Brian the Carpenter helped us install some old doors so that Katie could get a little extra storage on a wall that would otherwise have none.
That wall needs to stay clear (because the floor space directly in front of it is going to be a walkway to the kitchen area), but I was determined to work in some storage, vs. just hanging artwork on it. There will be four (4.5″ deep) shelves inside those doors, and once Miss Katie decides to fill them with, we’ll decide what we’re going to do with the glass. If she stores pieces of crystal and china in it, we’ll keep it clear. If she decides to use it for canned goods, medication, and other pantry type items, we’ll frost or back the glass with fabric.
In the bedroom, Brian added a header above the doorway, and once Kevin primes and paints it, we’ll add a sliding track so that we can hang a barn-style door.
This is the one we’re using as inspiration:
It’ll act as the closet door most of the time, but they can slide it shut as use it as a bedroom door when they need it to function that way instead.
And on the other side of that doorway- here’s a shot of the wall I’m working on the DIY project for…
Any guesses what I’m making to use there? 😀
And last but not least, over in the bathroom, things really came together this week.
The guys are supposed to finish up in there next week, so I look forward to sharing a “ta-da!” post about that room when it’s all ready to go. Katie came over and looked at it today and I could’ve just burst seeing how happy it made her. 🙂 Fun stuff!
Happy weekend, friend!
