Our Barn Door Bedroom Addition

Our bedroom is long.  And until recently, about half of it was never used.


With a new baby on the way, we decided this would be the perfect space for a little nursery until baby is old enough for his/her own room, and then it would be turned into an office.  So, after some research, I showed The Hubby exactly what I had in  mind and he made it happen!


Because this space had no electrical, he also had to install the lighting.


He basically gave me a couple of hours to go out and find a light, so I came home with three. :)


And ultimately decided on this one.

Walls are done! Now on to the doors.





Our ceilings are pretty high, so I wanted the doors to be nice and tall for a little bit of a dramatic effect, so I asked The Hubby to make them as tall as he possibly could.

Almost done here! Just needed to finish the metal at the top, put the crown molding up, and put the hardware on.


The final product! And oh how I am in LOVE!!! The baby’s crib is behind the left door on the wall there, and we set up a little changing station on the desk.


And I decorated, too. :)  Curtains – DIY Tutorial HERE.  Rug- World Market (50% off). Chairs- Marshalls. Chandelier- World Market (25% off) Side table- Home Goods. Desk- Craigslist Chair- World Market (25% off)






I am SO proud of The Hubby for making this happen and so very grateful as well. We are ready for you, baby!
