It takes time. It takes an awful lot of time. But slowly we are getting there. Life gets in the way, work gets in the way, and that's just the way it is sometimes. I can't wait until the day we can finally move into our little farmhouse, but that day most likely won't be here until sometime next summer.
We are, however, pretty close to finishing the bedroom! Everything has turned out just the way I wanted it, and it will be fab once it's done. This is the wall we covered with new panelling, and here is also the door that we found in the barn, now with a fresh coat of paint and that distressed look I love so much. This door will eventually serve as a headboard in here.
There are a few things left to do - put up cornices, build in the new IKEA cupboards, put in a new door and fix a curtain rod (I'm thinking of maybe using one of the old rods we found in the barn, previously used for drying hay. I think that would look really cool.) Oh, and I think I am going to write something on the panel wall too- a poem or something. I just haven't figured out what yet. Maybe I'll cover a wall with old dictionary paper. I have tons of ideas, and I am so anxious to get started on all of this! But, like I said, it all takes time.
