Barn Doors … and a kitchen update.

In our Farm Road House we used Barn Door Hardware to hang the doors to our SunRoom.

We wanted the room to be separate, but didn't want the doors to be in the way when open.

We searched for old doors to use, but just didn't find exactly what we were looking for.

So we bought stock doors from Home Depot and painted them up.

I loved the look and feel of the real barn hardware.

If you follow me on IG you know that we made a trip to Kennebunk, Maine last week to look for old doors for our ProjectDownSize house.

One of my favorite places … I blogged about it here.

We loved the barn style doors so much that we are going to replicate them in our kitchen.

But this time we want something different … 

Size was a major factor … we either needed one large door at 52" wide or 2 smaller doors that would could hinge together to get to the right size.

I came a cross this photo a few months ago and loved the feel of these doors … 

A little Fancier than I wanted … but a look to consider.

Here's what we found … 

52 1/2" wide.  Perfection.
An original Wood Panel from an 1823 House … 

It has the most beautiful soft green patina … the original paint color.  

She needs a little scrub and then she'll be ready for some accessorizing.

Her new Hardware!

Hopefully this beauty will be covering the new pantry shelves very soon!

Happy Monday my friends!

Matchy - Matchy - Monday ...

I fell for it.  Hook. Line. Sinker.

Normally I am not an MM girl.  But I wanted the simplicity and continuity of the Buffalo Plaid in my kitchen.  
Chairs Painted ... do you have a guess?  Gloss Black.  
Go figure.  I know.

The Rooster Pillow is an old favorite ... she can stay.
 If she's nice to her new friends.

Next Up?  Window Treatments and Fluff.
And the New Fridge? In the House. 
And yes, two of the window mullions are missing.
I will fix that.

Thanks for following along my kitchen journey!

Thank you Grace!

While I was unplugged a couple of weeks ago ... and Catching a Breath I picked up the March InStyle Magazine.

And Found Grace!

This is It!

You know I've been wanting this.

So Grace gave me the inspiration to move forward with my Buffalo Plaid.  
The Yellow and Red and Black spoke to me. 

This sweet girl that sat in our living room for years and she just got all gussied up and Moved to the Kitchen.

A Pop of Yellow Happiness is keeping the kitchen fresh
and even sunny with snow still in the window!

Window treatments to be made ... and yes, I am ignoring the fact that there is a door behind the sofanowbanquette.
Because I don't want the door there.
I have dismissed it.
Show you how we do that as the kitchen progresses!

It's all in the Details.

Thank You Grace.
