Went from white to a gray -green then I put up fir strips painted the same color of the wall to help conceal the natural gap that occurs in the old barn wood(my choice to do it this way) I did not want to have thousands of nail holes to deal with if for some reason the barn wood did not work out. I am still thinking of adding an industrial look to the wood by adding steel bolts to the ends but that is another wait and see.

*office make over* sneak peek
Been slowly but surely making over this room , took a while to find the barn wood, Kyle found a barn for me that was in the way of a road expansion so Dennis and I and Kyle went and tore some of the wood off , it has been sitting here at the house and I finally go off my duff and sanded the dirty stuff off the backside( like bird droppings , mold ) then sealed both sides. Started to install some yesterday but I need to go get a new box for electrical so we can finish up. Trying to figure out what type of office furniture to get, we tore off two stable doors I was thinking one of those might make a unique desk top but will wait until all the wood is done before I make that decision. Will use the barn wood for trim work also, then I have one idea for the closet door in my head that I will need to see if it works out. So until then this is all I got to show for now.
