Cozy in the country

Holy-Moley!  School is almost out, it has been wicked hot lately, and road construction seems to be popping up everywhere.  Must be time for SUMMER!  Can you tell that I am just a tad excited?  Here are a few things I wanted to share with you!

I would have loved to wear these when I was a child!
I might have to get these glasses for my kitchen.
Have you seen these crazy stuffed animals yet?
Another cake that is calling for me.

Barn Doors

What a day!  I was up a good portion of the night with a baby who obviously wanted to play toys and watch King of the Hill reruns.  Then my husband woke me up at the crack of dawn to ask me where the number was for poison control.  That'll get you out of bed in a hurry!  No worries, everyone survived.  To top it all off, that baby I mentioned earlier decided to start crawling.  So far I've only lost him once and all I had to do was follow the path of destruction.  Anyway, today's post is all about barn doors.  I can't believe I haven't posted on this topic before.  I love the look of barn doors in the home.  Here are some great examples.

The bright color adds a lot of visual interest to this small space.

This is a great way to add the option of more privacy to an open space.

Contemporary Girl's Room

Here is a wonderful bedroom designed by Philpotts Interiors.  The paneled white walls and sliding barn door would blend in well with my modern farmhouse some day.  Check it out!

Kitchen Inspiration

Six years ago, my husband said we could remodel the kitchen in five years.  We were all set to do a complete remodel when we bought the house, but decided to only make necessary changes and live in the house for a while to see what worked and what didn't.  We refinished the floor, added a dishwasher, replaced the sink and did a diy tile countertop.  The cabinets are from the 1950's and are in rough shape.  Even worse is the fact that we have outgrown the kitchen.  Too many people and an inefficient layout is an accident waiting to happen.  I am trying to decide whether to remove the wall between the dining room and kitchen.  The downside to this would be losing the original swinging door to the kitchen which also hides a messy kitchen when we have unexpected guests.  Decisions, decisions.  Here are a few images that I'm using as inspiration.  Have a great weekend!
