Progress Outside

I hope you had a great weekend! It was SO pretty outside - we spent the entire weekend working on our yard.

Planter tutorial on eHow soon!

Our yard is a mess - tons of dead trees. We've been cutting down the dead trees and trees close to the house. This resulted in ALOT of trunks and branches. David has been splitting some of the logs when he has time. For the small branches, we rented a wood chipper (see that pile in the background?) Perfect for mulching!

For the large logs, we had them picked up and milled. Can't wait to get them back! We have a fenced in garden planned!!

Hope you're enjoying pretty weather as well - makes me miss the 70 and sunny weather of California!

DIY Barn Closet Doors Complete

Hey! We finished the barn doors - and I finally got around to taking photos! I LOVE the transformation.

Here's a before shot - the bifold doors were ugly, tight (to walk through) and awkward to use. When we redid the closet, David repaired the drywall and made one large opening in the center - I love how open it feels now! 

I won't be sharing a tutorial - sorry! Since they were custom to work with our ceiling, I'm not sure a full tutorial will be helpful. I will share a some general tips though.

The track is made from 1.5" 3/16" thick flat steel bar - David welded supports to go into the door frame and ends to attach it to the wall.

The hangers are also made from the same steel bar with a wheel from a pully at Home Depot. We originally purchased ball bearing wheels from Amazon (which would have been smoother) - but they were too large to fit in this space.

The doors were made from 1x3 poplar and 1/4" birch plywood - using tongue and groove router bits to create shaker doors.

Since we renovated our closet, we've kept it pretty clean - amazing how having an organized space can do that! So, we keep the doors open for the most part.

Large handles are from DLawless! I love the large scale and clean lines.

Since it's white on white, it's hard to capture in a photo, but the subtle contrast of the shaker door looks so good in person. I love how the doors frame the space!

Progress in here has been slow (we've been working outside recently) Next, I'd love to add draperies, a new bed, and chandelier. Too many projects - too little time!

That's it for today, have a great week!!

Happy Friday! I hope that you had a great week! 

Don't want to do a full bath remodel, but want to freshen up your floor? Add a teak wood floor directly on top of the tile. (I couldn't find the original source, if you know it, please let me know and I'll add it)

I'm obsessed with my new sneakers! (I wear anywhere from a 6 (dress shoes) to a 7 (sneakers) and got a 7, so I'd say they are true to size) 

That's it for today - I hope you have a great weekend!
