A Peek At Our New Barn-Style Doors & My New Favorite Backdrop

This weekend, Scott finished up a couple barn-style doors on a track that he pieced together completely on his own, based on some inspiration online.

This man. I don’t dare tell him he CAN’T swim the Atlantic Ocean for fear of him actually proving me wrong. I’m ashamed of how little faith I had in him to pull this off. But he’s not a blacksmith, you know?

Anyway, just add it to the long list of things he can hold over my head. “Remember that time you said I couldn’t fix the Jeep/install hardwood floors/bend metal and hang doors from it?? HA!”

For any of you interested in how he did it, we are currently working together to come up with as detailed a tutorial as possible. It will hopefully go up this week. I will tell you, though, this ain’t no beginner DIY project, and you need quite a few tools to pull it off. If you have the time, tools and determination, it shouldn’t be too hard.

Onward to what I really want to show off! These doors are officially my new favorite photo backdrop. Behold the cute that is nearly 19 month old Leyna showing off daddy’s handiwork.

When she ran into the office yesterday morning, she exclaimed “Wook! WhaYisTees??” Which means “Look! What is this?!” in toddler language.

Then she began to climb atop the tiny chair randomly placed in front (by me, for specific picture taking purposes in mind).

Toddlers love tiny chairs. It’s the cutest combo.


Leyna’s sporting an Itti Bitti Tutto cloth diaper that I’m so happy she finally fits! I got it from the Haute Green Blogher party last summer, but it was always a little too “itti bitti” to fit all her chub! She’s finally starting to stretch out and slim down a little, and now it fits perfectly. I’m so glad because it’s adorable, and also really absorbent and reliable. This isn’t any sort of official review. Just thought I’d tell y’all all a bit about the diaper she happened to be sporting when I managed to get these pics.
