FOR THE RECORD...let me be the first to admit that sometimes, sometimes, my anticipated energy and ambition exceed my actual energy and ambition. I will see (and buy!) something at an auction that I have great plans for. You know the piece...that awesome school locker that would look soooo cool painted red or bright blue in a little boy's room (have one!). Or the bench that just needs a new end and it will be good to go (have one!) Or the dresser with the really bad finish, but great bones...you get the picture. Well, since we have moved into the new barn and we have more space now, we are going to let you take over some of our projects (if you have the energy/ambition/vision)! We are ready to introduce...the R ROOM!
What ever is the R ROOM, you ask? Well...it's the area of the barn where we will sell...at REALLY good prices...the items that we haven't had a chance to R yet. That's refinish, restore, rejuvenate, redecorate, reinvent, repaint, repair, repurpose...you get the picture!

This is a really beautiful mantle waiting for some TLC!
A vanity that just needs a coat or two of paint on the top...
The time has come to use this tractor...see it? We use it to turn dirt up over the rows of precious asparagus in the spring. I need to get it free of the prison it is currently living in...and clean out this storage area!
I promise...it's under there!!! My Granddaddy got it in 1949 (i think!) and we still use it in the asparagus field!
We'll have more pics up next week...we're spending at least one whole day in the barn during Sharon's spring break from school! Yaaaaayyyy!

We live in Silver Spring but plan to come to that area soon, are you open for business? In other words can one drop by and "pick your barn"?
