I’m not an interior decorator but I do want my home to be beautiful. I love finding new and interesting things to add to my home to make it mine. I’ve always loved old things. Vintage, antique, shabby chic! But I wouldn’t say that describes my decor. I usually go with whatever I like and make it work. But if my hubby would let me I would live in a 100 year old house with tons of character and a wrap around porch. I would have a pink and blue, shabby chic to the hilt bedroom and a vintage farm kitchen. Of course I would also need a big red barn in the back yard…….ya non of this is happening! 😉 haha I’ve tried to talk him into it but he just rolls his eyes and reminds me how much work would go into an old home. And because he is the handy one around the house and would be doing all the repairs, I can understand where he’s coming from.
I am not complaining because I actually love my home. But it never hurts to dream a little right!?!
Lately I have been stalking the Facebook Yard Sale sights looking for fun things to paint. This week I came across something amazing and I was lucky enough to be the first one to see it. So I bought it! Wanna see it! 😉
So maybe I can’t have the big red barn in the back yard but I can have the barn ladder in my dining room!! I fell in love with this the second I saw it. And it is perfect the way it is. I don’t know how old it is but the lady I bought it from said it came from an old barn in Idaho. It was built with whatever wood was laying around, the nails are old and rusty and some are sticking out of the wood and it’s aged to perfection! I cannot tell you how much I love this!
I have only had this for a few days but every time I see it I smile! I think home should be filled with your favorite people and things that make you happy. You don’t have to be an expert to make your home beautiful to you.
Tell me what you think of the ladder and I would love to hear what some of your favorite finds are in your home.
Thanks for taking a look!
