Rustic garden shed 2 – building a barnwood door
I built a barnwood door from reclaimed fencing wood!
And I cheated yet again. The wood strips weren’t perfect width wise and my attempt at ripping one down to fit didn’t go so well, so because of the magic yet again of all those screws, I undid my work and simply respaced the boards out abit to fit. I kinda like the gaps. I hope they look intentional…
(this post was created in my early blogging days… I didn’t know enough to show how the door was built.. my ways have since changed..)
I laughed when I saw this ring of canning jar lids strung together at a garage sale for $1. and stashed it away… and I laughed as I hung it up today as a canning jar lid door wreath. Pretty sweet industrial edge I say.
( They weren’t this rusty first going up. Leaving them outdoors turned the lids to this wonderful rust tone in no time!)
I think this vintage styled doorknob was meant to be a coat hook. I found it at a craft store with the knob screwed onto it’s own backer board. So I just attached it as is to the building with screws.
We’ve run into a small issue though. There’s a massive bee hive growing inside the building.
Bees are WEIRD. For most of the day they buzzed and scolded me for hangin’ so near their digs, having me scream and swat and then give up on the siding. My son was on guard and he was to tell me if they started swarming around me as I worked. It got to the point where there was too much damage control, so I left for abit. Upon returning, the sun had moved leaving the building in the shade and the bees were GONE. So that’s how I got to finish up the door.
Regardless, there’s progress today! I hope to continue with hopes of getting near a finish tomorrow weather permitting.
I’m liking the door very very much. 🙂 We shall see what I do with it tomorrow.
