What’s Behind Door Number One
There is something magical about an old barn. So stately, so picturesque… I always try to envision the barn in its heyday, what role it played on the farm and what took place inside of it. I imagine the warm smell of animals, the slightly dusty but earthy scent of hay, the sweat dripping from the brow of the resident caretaker. It’s like a beautiful story just waiting to be unveiled.
Perhaps that same magic is what compels me to bring the elements of a barn into my home. Reclaiming lumber from the historic landmarks and finding new uses for it is a continual quest for me. From furniture to siding to wall décor, barnwood can be found in many places inside my home.
The decorator inside of me loves (LOVES!) to binge watch HGTV for new ideas. The day I watched Property Brothers and they installed a barn door on a master bath, I was in love. I had found my next project: Timber Frame Barn Wood Sliding Door
for my downstairs hall bathroom. The traditional swinging door had been blocking traffic flow and the sliding door provided the perfect solution. What better way to highlight my love for rustic décor while providing a space saving door for the powder room? Perfect!
If you have a room in your house that you want to hide, but don’t have the space or desire to use folding or hinged doors, consider a barn door. Just hang it on a track and presto! Great style AND functionality.
