Welcome to my LODGE! HOLLER

Houston, we have a barnwood wall!!!!!!!!!! My word, I AM OBSESSED and overjoyed…. all for this wall of glory. It is a GEM! It is beautiful. It changed our space. It is made with love. It is US. I love it!!!!!!!!!! 

Ever since we moved into this space we have been going over different ideas for our living room. This room is the room we are in the most. reading/ playing/ resting/ entertaining/ writing/ conversating/ laughing/ eating…… We decided we wanted to do the barnwood wall and paint the walls for now….

 The living room when we moved in.

The space last fall….

and now!!!!!  (I spy a 4 year old on the couch) I still have to finish up the painting and hang the curtains. I will post more next week the details of how we did this project. Isn't it dreamy? I wanted it to feel like a retreat or a lodge. We intentionally do not have a tv on our main floor. The only TV we have is in our basement, wanting to shut off the noise on a daily basis. We did upgrade and get speakers in our living room this summer, which has been a big upgrade for our love for music on 24/7. Andy did a great job on the wall. I love the character of the wood.

We used the same wood from my in law's land. The wood was a old shed. We used it for our barn door in the studio and our farm table too! (more on the table here)

Andy snapped some details shots of the wall for me, here they are.

 We pressure washed the wood, pickled the wood, and sealed it with a poly sealant. I love the Z pattern on the bottom half and the vertical panels by the windows!

We like the texture it brings to the space. Andy kept it in it's original character, which I adore.

I will share pix soon of the curtains and the other angles in the space. I re-did the gallery wall, of course! I painted the living room a light grey! The color is Sherwin Williams- Requisite Gray It used to be beige, this color is much more us! My buddy, Kristin helped me a ton with her Type A-ness and edged for me! PTL. I still have to paint up the stairs and upstairs hallway. soon…soon….hopefully….;)

What do you think? Have you used barn wood at all in your home?

Also, a shout out and thank you to my in laws for the wood! and big thanks to Andy's buddies for helping him with wall and lending him the saw (Mike) :) You rock!
