What to do? We couldn't decide. Old door? Barn wood wall? Build headboard with cubbies and put candles in them?
All I knew was I wanted: light and airy.
So after much thinking. Drawing. Looking in Pinterest. I came up with this.....
We weren't sure what it would really look like. We just started going through our old wood we had been collecting for YEARS.
All I knew is that I wanted airy sheets to hang from the top. And maybe eventually twinkle lights. ❤️ twinkle lights.
So. Today we got started.
We did have to go get two pieces of cedar wood. 8 feet long. Cut them to 7 feet.
The three pieces we are attaching to the cedar is 100+ year barn wood beams my brother gave us 6 years ago.
Next we took the old wood from a park bench my neighbor redid. He gladly gave me the scrap. 👍🏻
We used the bench scrap to add a shelf. And cover over the cedar. The cedar is more like a foundation to the entire project. To hold it together if you will.
We covered the cedar foundation with the old wood.
I say we. It was my best guy. My husband. 😘😘
I wanted the curtain rod to be hidden.
Love love love!!
Now I need hardware to pull curtains back. Maybe old door knob?
I will be back to show the finished product.
