I just spent hooooooooooours trying to solve technical issues on the website. Apparently there was a lot of “malicious code”. Whatever that means. Remind me never to be a computer coder! Yikes!
The crab shack is coming along. I haven’t been this excited for a project since the tree house. Last week my awesome bro Cody helped me take down the random sliding glass doors that were literally in the middle of my bedroom (don’t fret, there are three more in the crab shack itself!) The next step, drywall.
Now, it’s confession time, as much as I love DIY I have an achilles heel… it’s drywall. For the sake of full disclosure I have never tried any stone masonry and that looks pretty intense, but I have tried drywall and it looked, well, it looked like a 1st grade art project. Only I would never take a picture of it and hang it on the fridge. There are some really great tutorials out there for dry-walling, but for me it was easier to call a professional. It started like this:
After the drywall and texture mud:
And then painted:
Doesn’t it look amazing!? It’s incredible how taking down the doors and finishing the entry opened up the master bedroom so much. HGTV style, really.
The next steps are to work on hardware and procure doors. I am having a huge debate on whether I want big, brown, rustic feature doors, or if I’m going to go a little more conservative/modern and match the doors with the rest of the home. As far as hardware, I am happy dancing around these days because the blessed hardware arrived! National Hardware sponsored this project’s barn door hardware and door expense. Huge thank you to them! The moment I opened the boxes I knew the project was going to be awesome. This hardware is the real deal and I can’t wait to put it up and tell you all about it. Some seriously good times ahead people.
