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!

Looks great. That bathroom is awesome. I love the black bars.
Do you mind sharing where you purchased that narrow console table that’s in the hallway? it would be a perfect fit for a spot I have … every thing is coming along nicely thanks for the updates!
Thank you for the update, cheering you on!
I Love the bathroom especially the beautiful floor. Did we see the finished results for the stairs going to the loft??
Thank you, Linda! We haven’t worked on the stairs yet. We’re saving them for last. 🙂
Everything is so beautiful! Can’t wait to see the finished product. Happy weekend!
I love seeing your barn updates. It’s so charming. I love all your well thought out details.
Could you share where the black grab bars are from, they are so much nicer than the usual hospital grade grab bars. Everything is coming together so well!
Sure thing! We got them at Home Depot. 🙂
Oh my gosh Layla! It’s looking AWESOME! You guys should be really PROUD of yourselves . . . With everything you have going on, you can see the LOVE you have put into that space! 💚
Layla, what color did you use on the walls. Such a nice color!
Simply White by Benjamin Moore. 🙂
Thank you. Sorry if you’ve answered before, but I didn’t get an alert. I just happened to check back today.
It all looks great! Have I missed a final pic of the stairs to the loft? If so, can you include a link or perhaps in your next barn update?
Everything looks just fabulous!
It’s looking simply divine! I know it might seem slow, but from here your progress is amazing. BTW…Love that skinny console/hutch! Was that a Home Goods find? 😉
Love it all! So excited for you guys to be closing in on the end of this reno. I see furniture in there, which is always a good sign!
It’s really coming together so great! Guessing you are making a framed mirror OR a painting, maybe of a barn star?
I was thinking barn star of some sort also.
LOVE LOVE LOVE all the shiplap and subway tile – I just got back from the Silos in Waco! The bungalow reminds me of Magnolia Market!!! 😉
Everything looks so lovely! I love the idea of opening glass doors used as a way for displaying things. It would mak it so easy to change out with seasons, ideas, etc.
Hi Layla! Love your style! Can you tell me what type wood you use on the walls? It looks amazing!!
So glad you decided against the “rocky bottom” (?) stone textured tile, for the shower floor, Everything looks beautiful.
Love those glass doors! Another option is to diy antique-mirror them. That’s what I did with my china hutch, so I could stash all kinds of holiday stuff in there. It’s on the decor page of the blog. 🙂
Could you please share where you purchased the console table. Thanks for the updates!
Everything is looking just great!! 🙂
It’s from HomeGoods, Leslie- thank you! 🙂
