I've always thought barn doors were awesome and wanted to put them somewhere in our house, but didn't know where. It finally hit me that barn doors over the existing patio doors in the
basement would serve two purposes; the first being for privacy and second for security. The barn doors fit over the existing blinds that we have installed on the patio doors, but I am thinking of taking them off because no sun ever hits the windows due to the deck covering the patio just outside.

After living with builder grade oak cabinets for five years, we finally bit the bullet and painted them an creamy white. We have since then added back splash, repainted the kitchen, added
under cabinet lighting, installed a white cast iron sink with new oil rubbed bronze faucet and installed a pendant over the sink. We love how this kitchen has transformed from a 90s kitchen to a more up modern/ french country chic kitchen.

If you are thinking about starting a vegetable garden, now is the time to plan. I highly recommend that you build raised beds. You can grow more vegetables in a smaller area and control weeds and soil conditions

you can also cut off the hem and make headbands for the winter. the sleeves can be sewn
shut/be used for that extra pair of socks under your boots. most of the sweaters have really long sleeves so cut them shorter/little ones can use them as sweaters under/over their coats. and depending you the size of your dog/cat they can be worn by them too. thanks for sharing your ideas, they are wonderful
