Presenting: The Great Barn Door Makeover (Video)

OK, so THIS was an exciting one.

See, the master bedroom in our new place was kind of weird. I mean, I loved most of it when I first saw it – the windows, the breeze, the proximity to the pool, et cetera – but what I did not love about it was the fact that the bathroom was kind of…in it.

You’ll see what I mean in that video up there. Our sink was basically next to my head. It gave me the icks.

The solution: to call in a Thumbtack pro to help me figure out how to put in an amazing distressed wood barn door I found on (Seriously, yeah yeah, I’m Thumbtack’s lifestyle expert, but I am a Fan For Life at this point – I will be using them for any and all personal projects forevah and evah. If you have not tried using the service yet, you MUST: it’s crazy-easy because the form that you fill out to explain what you’re looking for is simple, and yet still detailed enough that you’re virtually guaranteed to get quotes from local pros who are specifically skilled in the project you’re looking to complete. And then boom: like a day later the project is started, and then it’s completed, and that, my friends, is NOT how home improvement projects typically function. Speaking from experience.)

The result? The master bathroom entryway is now one of my favorite decor elements in the entire house – and I REALLY like how this house is coming along, so that’s saying a lot. Check out the video above, and hop over to Lonny for an interview in which I talk more about the makeover process.

P.S. If you missed the first few videos in my Thumbtack series, here they are:
