I have a barn door!

 Let me start by saying I entered a giveaway back in December through instagram and facebook.
 My husband and I made the agreement we would not buy for each other this year as we get what
we need when we need it etc. I was so happy to have woke up one morning to this amazing win.
Now to pick out the door I wanted, I would have to learn patience through this experience. I am
not patient at all. If I buy a gift I cant hold onto to it, I have to give it right away. This would turn
into a 3 month project, so you can imagine how hard this was for me. We have a friend we call our
fixer upper his name is Frank! Now he is really busy and I get him in between projects or when he
has 5-30 mins. So that is where the patience comes in. First I would have to pick my door, than decide where it was going to go. Next have Frank over to help me build it, measure it and place the order over the phone. I must tell you is amazing and has excellent customer service. They are prompt and ship out quickly. I chose the Ranch style. Our home is built in the 70's and has lots of possibilities when it comes to fixing up. I am loving the dark woods in my home. Our last home was newer and all white. This home I feel like it is a farmhouse style.
I was so excited one day to pull in the driveway and see the package there. Now on the left is the finished project. It would have to be assembled. I could of had it come assembled but I saved $500-$600.00 having it sent unassembled. More patience. Can you believe it sat about three weeks before we would start the project.
 We have a two story house and I decided I needed more food space. I decided to turn the underneath
staircase storage into a pantry.
 This was what I had ick! You know when you move in someplace and its just one of those places no
one sees and you kinda forget about it. It always bugged me. So we finally had the incentive to get
 Painting is not one of my strong suits but I actually once involved got excited for the finished project.
 This is what we came up with. We have since added baskets and more racks.
 Finally the day would come when we started to put it together. Only to find out it was to tall.
Oh my imagine my disappointment. Now Frank would have to brainstorm. I waited a few more
days, wondering if I would have to put it somewhere else.
He decided to shave a few inches off, which really made me sad to have to cut on this beautiful
door. However he did a great job and you could never tell.
 Here it is installed. I am in love with my door!
 My granddaughter peeking around the corner lol.

Where does it stop? Now I want to switch out baseboards and replace all the outlets. This door was
truly such a wonderful gift. I am so blessed by this win! I am enjoying having a pantry and feeling it
up. Its not perfect by any means but it works for me. Thanks for letting me share with you my barn door. Have a great weekend. Blessings Pam

8 months Already!

Little Miss Harlow Jaine turned 8 months yesterday. Time goes by so fast. Already talking about her 1st birthday plans. She is such a happy baby.

 I love this one above. She looks like she is ready for trouble.

 Her big sis Londyn is such a good helper and they sure love each other. Being a gammy has sure changed me. I am so much more relaxed and less stressed than I use to be.
Sunday we had a taste of spring. Windows open, children playing outside, lawnmowers going. Now we have down pouring of rain. Gets me excited though. Hope your enjoying your day. Blessings Pam
We do not remember days we remember moments!
