Our Barn Home: A New Wall

It has been a while since I have posted an update on our barn.  We have been busy lately and doing little things around the barn, but not so many big projects.  My hubby reminded me that even the little projects are part of the story of our barn and worth documenting. 
It's been a while since I have posted an update on our barn home.  Today I am sharing the pallet wall that my son built for me.  It makes our rustic barn look even more rustic.  A pallet wall is a quick, DIY project that almost anyone can do. A Glimpse of Normal
Today's update is a bigger project.  It is one that has been rolling around in CJ's head for a little bit now.  He knew that I had really considered putting in a pallet wall at our old house, but then we found the barn and decided to move so it didn't happen.  That idea stuck in his head and I didn't really think much more about it.  There is a lot of wood in our barn which I ABSOLUTELY love so I wasn't really sure if a pallet wall would fit in anywhere in the barn.  CJ picked our back living room wall and decided that it would be a great place for a pallet wall.  Initially, I was a little concerned because I thought it might be too trendy or not look natural in the barn.  I was flat out wrong and I will be the first to tell you this.  CJ took on this project and ran with it.  Although he doesn't want me to tell you it was him and he would like me to tell you that it was Mae, yes the rescue dog, Mae, check the evidence.

CJ tore apart pallets, matched up board sizes, and prepped them for going on the wall.  Then he got started.  The only assistance he got from me was picking which side of the board should face out on some of the boards.  The only assistance he got from Dad was the very top row because not much is square in this old barn anymore and the very bottom row since it had to meet up to the floor.  Other than that, this project was all CJ and I couldn't be more proud of him for putting his vision into action.  Boys need to do this kind of thing.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how the finished wall turned out.  I could tell with just a few boards up that the wall would look natural.  Once it was all done, it looks like the wall was always a pallet wall.  It looks like what I picture the inside of the barn looked like before it became a house.

What do you think?  Do you love it as much as I do?  I will be back soon with some more changes we have made in the barn.  Until then, stay tuned.
