These beautiful boards are from a recently demolished barn and will soon be our sliding closet doors. We got them via Pacific Heritage Wood.)
But first we have to figure out which planks will make up which door. And the arrangement within each. The way we’re moving them around on the garage floor reminds me of playing with pattern blocks as a kid.
We’re especially taken with the boards that are sprinkled with lichen. And really hopeful about how they’ll look against the new white walls.
