We finally got a piece for behind our bed that I have been waiting so long to do. Our bedroom is tiny and we thought of a few possibilities of what we wanted to put behind there. We have a few old doors but they were all too long for that space. I would've had to take my side table away and push the bed against the wall and I didn't want to do that. I like having a little bit of space to get out on my side of the bed.
This barn door that we got in Lancaster was the perfect length. My husband stripped the top coat of paint off which was chipping white. Underneath was green and he sanded that down to get it smooth and I repainted it with Annie Sloan white paint. I distressed it and waxed it with clear wax. I like that little bit of green coming through. And this is what we have. I'm really happy with it.
On the right side which was the bottom of the door, and had some rotting. I was going to make my husband cut it off and cut the other side to match and make it even but I decided against it because it actually gave it character. Plus I didn't want the door shorter. The original hardware was still with the door which was great.
Above is a panoramic view. It cuts a little of the corner of the room off and makes the doors look a little distorted. I still have to repaint our dressers. This set was my moms when she was a kid. It is already stripped for like 5 years now. Just sitting around waiting to be made pretty. I am deciding on what color I should paint it. I was going to do white with a dark top or black.
Our room color is a soft blue kind of grayish. I am hoping that we still have some paint left so I can find out the color. We have a little touching up to do.
I went to Home Goods and that is where I found the bed quilt. It is Ralph Lauren. I love Home Goods, they have such awesome prices. I'm so glad they had the Euro shams and standard shams. At times it's so hard to find a match and they were the last ones. Yay for me! :) The smaller solid white pillows I got at a yard sale, brand-new still with tags on them from Pottery Barn for five dollars each. I thought that was a score. The feathery looking pillow I got from Target. The beautiful burlap one I bought off of Etsy.
I didn't like my bedroom for the longest time. It is finally coming together just how I like it. It's very soothing. I love the white and I love the paint color, it has a calming effect. It used to be yellow and the bedding was all mismatched. Now I can't wait for when it's time to retire for the night.
We still have the other wall to do as well, so I will update when we're finished.
Hope you're all having a great weekend!
Blessings & Love,
