Back to the real world today after a nice week off.  I hope you all had a wonderful break with family, friends and some delicious food.  Am I the only one still in a Turkey coma?!

I am back today with another Renovation Wishlist.  This time we are looking at Barn Doors.  We currently have a barn door in the library… but, once the renovation happens and we have a real third bedroom, the need for the existing barn door will be gone, so we will be taking that one down.  This gives me the opportunity to have fun with a new one!  In our plan, did I mention we have a plan, now?!!  AAAHH!!  I’ll be sharing that soon… We do have a massive barn door, so that means big statement!  The new Barn Door will be for our Laundry nook and my husband and I plan on building it out ourselves.

Here are a few that are really inspiring me now as we are going for more of an architectural look vs. farmhouse/rustic.

I really love the graphic patterns, color and the handles on these next two.

This one shows that if planned properly I can still add moulding (and hopefully some thinner artwork!) on the wall that will be behind the door once it has been slid open.  Because the idea of a 6′ wide blank wall would basically drive me crazy.

Bria Hammel Interiors

While maybe not this pattern, this one shows that the design can go as far as your imagination can take you.  Trim can really change the look.


I hope you all have a Happy Monday!  I’ll be back tomorrow with the simplest project for the Holidays.
