I recently discovered that we live near a lumber yard that specializes in reclaimed wood . Paul and I decided to check it out earlier this week .
They had some really great stuff. The sales guy we talked to was really nice but I don't think he could quite understand that I wanted raw, rough, gray wood . He kept pulling out these samples of reclaimed wood that had been sanded, stained and polished so that it looked brand new. They were beautiful samples, but I want something that looks like it came straight from the barn to my ceiling. Although he didn't understand exactly what I want, I was excited to see that they have what I want sitting out in the lumber yard.
Unfortunately, we are still working on the guest room in our house so that has to be finished before I can move on to the wood ceiling project. The rest of the morning was spent at the paint store.
But not before I talked Paul into stopping by my new favorite antique store. As I figured, I haven't had as much luck with that store since my first visit. But I did get this cute little wire basket to store Riley's books.
Time to watch Flipping Out. Good night!
