Willing Cowboys & Barn Doors

Slowly, slowly we are fixing up the old farm house. 

This place is really a 25 year project and I'm enjoying the process. 

I found a barn door that I love. 

I knew we couldn't buy it...

So I asked The Cowboy to make me one. 

He said yes, and I felt all giddy for days. Something as simple as a willing Cowboy and two new barn doors can make a woman feel so incredibly loved...

I couldn't find that great of a before picture, but these were the doors that used to be there...

And these are my new lovely barn doors!!!

And while he was in building mode, My Cowboy helped me build a simple Fall mantle... just an old pallet from the barn, trimmed down and stained espresso, an owl I found at Hobby Lobby for $2, and a white pitcher with some fake Fall berries, all resting on an old shelf that I found out in the stable. Love.

 Someday the farmhouse might have wide plank wood floors and old barn wood stairs... and maybe some beams on the ceiling! Oh the glory of making a house your own! So thankful for our little farmhouse. :)
