Day 787's random thought
Did your mom ever ask you if you were raised in barn?
If it were one of these barns, would that be such a bad thing?
I think I could be very happy in a barn. A pretty one, of course.
The next best thing would be a set of barn doors someplace unexpected. Like an office (like Erika's, above).
I might not even insist that they be old. This one (from Sunset), is new and is quite good-looking.
Speaking of barns, my dad has some lumber from a barn* that was torn down on a farm near his. I can tell he's saving it for the perfect project, but I'm trying to convince him that I need just one log to make a table like this one (spotted on the Pieces blog). I think I've mentioned this before.
*This barn was supposedly the last place Jesse James was seen in Tennessee. According to the tale, he bought the owner's two best horses. Is it just me, or would it be cool to sort of eat dinner with a legendary outlaw?! Or maybe I've just seen a few too many cowboy movies ...
