I’ve been making quite a few changes around the cabin lately and decorating around the eyesore in the room, the boob tube was on my list. I’d been looking for old barn doors to use on either side of the tv, old shutters, or something similar to fill in the space. Ya know if you hold out long enough something will present itself and work out.
We have a friend who’s parents had passed recently and he was wanting to sell a few thing out of the house before everything went to auction and invited hubby and I down to have a look see and see if we wanted anything. Well my mind just doesn’t work like a normal person and while he was showing hubby old crocks and antiques I was checking out the swinging saloon doors between the kitchen and dining room.
I stood back looking at the doors, even broke my tape measure out of my purse and sized them up then debated on asking if he’d sell them. Once I realized they were the exact size I was looking for I broke down and asked if they’d possibly be for sale.
He said heck ya, my mom always hated those things but my dad went through a cowboy stage and just had to have them. He immediately took out a screwdriver and unhinged them from the doorframe, and handed them over. I was going to give them a coat of white wash paint before putting them up but I decided I liked them just the way they were.
