Here are the pictures. Gosh it's killed me to have waited so long to reveal her, but a few adjustments had to be made to get good pictures.
We love how it turned out.
There were a lot of readers that guessed red from when I first posted the originally post. I had to hide the comments on facebook & not publish the comment on my blog. Sorry guys...had to wait for the game begin. But, I thought it was pure awesome that so many read my style :)
I had guesses of shade of purple, black, white, cayenne, to all sorts of other colors.
Everyone that comes in is quickly drawn to it & asks me lots of questions. I loved the blue it was painted, and when I started sanding it down..it was showing some awesomeness. But, blue wasn't on my brain...this barn door red was.
I grew up riding horses & living out in the country with a barn. I am drawn to red doors, barn doors & barns...so it is simply what I wanted to incorporate into our living space. I now have my very own red sliding barn door.
One last look at a before....
|The day I picked her up...|
|Starting the process...see all the wood rot?|
Lots of work went into turning her into a red beauty :)
I hope you enjoyed the reveal & the game. I love to gift things so it was super duper fun for me!!
Thank you to Shannon at Fox Hollow Cottage for working with me on getting the Maison Blanche paint giveaway together!! She's simply awesome folks..I highly recommend her to you all :)
I have something fun to show you all hopefully (I am off to the Stormville Flea Market in the morning) tomorrow, but couldn't reveal until I had a winner and was able to show the door :)
And, CONGRATS Becky H. :)
