today is the day...




It feels like Christmas morning! After all the anticipation, today is the day I am takin' down the barn!

 We were up early...the house was chilly and I wanted to stay snuggled under my down comforter, to be honest. I have been fighting off a terrible case of Bronchitis since my visit to Junk Bonanza over a week ago, so that should make it interesting. But, it is now or never. The owner is getting anxious to burn this baby down, so I have to get it while I can!



Wish me luck! I'll be back with photos of our progress tomorrow!

  1. New reader here, I'm assuming you're bringing it home with you ;) Lots of work, hope it goes well. Sip some "throat coat" tea. It won't cure you, however it soothes the roughness. Will check back to see what you've done with the Barn. tami from the high street cottage

  6. Waiting with anticipation to see the progress, and what you do with the barn.

    Be sure to drink lots of water while you are working. It wouldn't hurt to wear a mask so the dust and dirt doesn't worsen your bronchitis. Oh, now I sound like a mother hen.

  17. So sorry to hear your under the weather for your big barn adventure. Believe it or not, my first date with my husband was tearing down a huge chicken coop on some farm property he owned. That was 14 years ago; the property was sold long ago, but I still have some of the wood! LOL

    Good luck and I be waiting to hear all about it.

  26. you are so lucky to be able to get your hands on some of that lovely barnwood. My dad was able to make wood floors in his office out of some old onion boxes out of my father in law's barn. I love it! They turned out beautifully and I love the history that is preserved in something like this! Good luck! Hopefully you will be feeling better soon. Bronchitis is the pits.

  29. What an amazing find! White barn wood! I hear it can be a challenge to disassemble... I hope that it isn't too hard for you, especially not feeling well! But I'm gonna guess that all the work will be nothing compared to the rewards! :)
    Can't wait to see what you do with your 'new' old materials.

  35. MAN I wish we were there to help you rip it down!
    But, come to think of it, I'd probably try to talk you into keeping it, moving it, and turning it into a fabulous shop instead!!! :-)
