Mine is pretty handsome. He's tall and gets things off top shelves for me. He takes me for ice cream when I'm cranky. He builds amazing furniture for me. (this too!) He also brings me flowers sometimes...
Flowers from the husband are always nice...especially if you get them for many weeks in a row...which I don't..AHEM Amy @ Buffalo Roam...
One afternoon husband said he got me a present and to come outside....(new car!?)
Nope, obviously, not a new car. And no, not the bales of straw either...
Adam had a buddy who was tearing down an old barn. He asked if we could have some of the wood. He said take it all. So we took everything we could. Two wagon loads full!
It's old, it weathered, it's rustic dreamy goodness...
Did you spot the old barn door under all that good stuff??
The best part...check out these beautiful barn beams. AND SO MANY OF THEM!
I am in love with them.
Can you be in love with wood?
Scout of course had to inspect everything...
We even got some cool old tin.
And after the second wagon was unloaded, we got to take a sit and discuss the future of projects. And the pin board that was already created in my head.
We don't even know what we are going to do with all of it yet. Obviously, I have some ideas:
- Beams on the ceiling in the basement
- A barnwood/rustic bar in the basement
- build a coffee table after we pick out new furniture
- patio furniture for the downstairs patio
- cut out letters out of the tin
What projects have you made with old barnwood or barn beams?
Does your man bring you unusual presents?
Oh, and as far as the furniture debate goes, leather is the easy winner. But I can't seem to find something I like....that isn't 1 trillion dollars...the search continues..
