Where Rustic Living Meets Refined Elegance

I guess it's true what they say.......

Just a reminder of how it's done when the day starts too early to think.

I hate these modern looking coffee makers.   Would someone please invent a coffee maker that looks pretty and works contemporary but doesn't look modern?  I need a percolator on a timer I guess.

Barn Doors: Door #2

Well I finally finished the doors in our master bedroom.  Like all the other doors we put in these were plain white Home Depot doors to begin with.  But let's face it, in this barn, plain white is booooring.  So in keeping with the vintage French theme I'm going for in the master bedroom, I decided an aged patina bronze with a faux wrought iron to match would look nice.
The faux wrought iron on the inside matches the finish on the doors, a patina'd bronze.  The outside of the doors are still white and the "wrought iron" looks like dark grey iron with flecks of bronze.

I added composites before I did the finish to give a little added interest.

I also added tiny little french scenes in the opening in the composite above each door
Now these are my kind of "Barn" doors!
