What's Old, Metallic, Made of Wood & Full of Bullets?

A few months back, 
My Decorating co-captain Linda gave me an old barn door to use as a table top.
It's probably over 100 years old and HEAVY.  
At one time in it's poor life,
Someone used it as target practice because it's riddled with bullet holes.
 One bullet is still there as proof. 

Oh, and it was painted metallic silver.  

The table top didn't work. But I have another idea. 
My front door isn't center.
 I'm thinking to repurpose Old Bullet Barn Door into a faux door on my porch,
setting it up with hinges next to my front door.

The mosaic house numbers will come down.
House numbers redone.

So like any normal person would do...
I hauled the door inside and laid in on my kitchen island to paint.
And now it's white.


My family is immune to this hauling in of doors business.
If I didn't have to make school lunches, it damn well may have stayed there.

Phase two: new house numbers.
Stay tuned. I have a plan for that too.

Also, shouting out a big thanks to for featuring
bees knees bungalow in their Be@Home 
 Best of the Web series!

xo jeanne.


  1. Can't wait to see what you come up with - house numbers too. It must be fun at your house.

  2. What a great piece. Now come up with some great story about the bullet holes! Will be anxious to see the finished product.

  3. Your newest idea looks quite interesting! I am anxious to see more! :)

  4. I love your curved entryway ceiling!!

  5. Wow! This looks great! I am so impressed!
