Remember that wall in our bedroom that I was talking about last week? Well, here it is:
The roof of the Bungalow Barn (on the other side of that wall) cuts right through the center of each of those windows, so we had to board them up and we’re looking forward to *finally* finishing it out this month. Here’s kind of what I’m thinking:
Beadboard on the wall, a couple of wingback chairs, a drop-leaf table, some chippy-framed photos, a big chippy-framed mirror, a couple of salvaged doors and a sliding track.
This is the chair I used in my photo…
…it’s the Thatcher Wingback Chair from Pottery Barn, but I’m not opposed to finding two wingbacks locally and reupholstering them. It would be fun to use a patterned fabric on the backs of them since you can see it as you approach the bedroom from the hallway.
These are the doors I cut and pasted into my photo:
We could either make ones just like it, or I’ll have fun hunting for some here and there…and quite possibly everywhere. 😉
Here’s the table I used in my photo:
I looooove it. I did find this one at Target the other day though, and it might work as well:
40″ Square Drop Leaf Rustic Dining Table
As of this moment, it’s on sale for $170- but I think the sale ends tomorrow.
Here’s another one that’s similar…
…but that one is $698. Makes that Target one look even better, huh? 🙂
I think I want to stick with my original vision of using a vintage or antique one though. And I like the rounded front edge, so I’m going to keep my eyes peeled for one like that too.
How about you? On the hunt for anything special right now? Happy weekend!

Layla! Wish I lived closer, or vice versa… found the 698.00 one for 10.00 at a Barn Sale here in Massachusetts!!! They had 2 of them. Bummer!!!
Loved The Paradise series as well!
I like the round table, softens the look.
Cool! I am moving to a country house and could easily see some og the details n my new home:-)
I love your vision for this room. I especially like the antique table. Its round edges play well with the black door track.
I have a table just like the round one. Ours has lots of leaves and can seat 10 (or more). I think it must have had coasters on it at some point, because the clearance for knees is extra short. 10 years ago when all of our kids were little, we were approached by another family with a large family with mostly grown kids. They were replacing their table with something more suitable to 6 foot tall men and they offered it to us for free because they wanted it to go where it could be used and appreciated. We have since upgraded to something a little more sturdy, but we have the old one on our covered porch for dining alfresco. It continues to bless our family and since it does break down so small, I plan to keep it forever.
I have a gate leg table with barley twist legs and I love it. It had been cut down and is the perfect height for a side table. I am a sucker for barley twist and wing back chairs. I love your room design.
What is on the other side of the doors?

Fun ideas! Does this mean that your in-laws will not be bringing their own furniture to the barn? What fun it would be to decorate the whole place~ When will the move take place. Downsizing is so hard~ we are in the midst of that now too.

Ha ha, I love how Sonny is sitting up in bed!
I really like the table with the drop sides you used in the first photo. Rustic but stylish!
Why are you using doors instead bead boarding the whole wall? It would be so much cleaner and your pieces would be the star, not the doors. You are so smart I know you have a good reason, just wondered. Love Sonny in the bed! 🙂
Oh, no secret reason. I just like the look of the sliding doors. 🙂
Just saw the cutest table on our local Craigslist that would look good in here:
I have my grandmother’s kitchen table that looks very much like your round inspiration photo. I love it, but alas, will be needing to sell it at some point. No one in the family wants it. Boo Hoo.
Isn’t it fun to do a little renovating? It will be fun to tag along as you do your magic, Layla. Also, I’m curious about the beams in your room. I’m thinking about adding some to our family room and like the look of yours. Were they something you added or were they in the house when you moved in? Any info you can pass along would be most appreciated. Thanks much!
It’s going to look beautiful! What is the source for the green landscape painting hanging above your bed? I love it!
I love your vision for the wall! Those doors add such interest and make you feel like they are doors to more space!
Hope sonny was reading before some sweet dreams! So cute!
I so like the more modern narrow wingbacks but its cuz i am tired of my traditional ones and i find some narrow shapes versitile in moving around to update my house for free lol.
There’s a place here in Chattanooga called the Insyde Outsyde Shoppe. They bring over all sorts of antiques from France, Wales, and other places in the UK. Very reasonably priced, we’ve gotten so much from there. You can find them on facebook. They usually get new shipments on Wednesdays. Great, great stuff!
And I meant to say that I’ve seen a lot of drop leaf tables there over the years.
I love your ideas, as usual, but I couldn’t take my eyes off your darling Sonny in the bed! I wanted to enlarge the picture just to see a close-up of him, lol. He’s so CUTE! He’s the best accessory! 🙂
Very good ideas and you both are so generous in changing things for your in-laws. I don’t like the sliding doors. It just seems weird when they are only for decoration.
They wouldn’t be there for decoration. They would cover the shelving we’d install in the old window holes.
