This Ain't Your Grandpa's Barn

I can't remember the last time I opened someone's site and spoke outloud to myself.
 
But I did this morning.
 
The Nester has just unveiled her Barn.
 
And I am stunned.
 
Simply  .  Jaw-dropping  .  Speechless
 
 BEFORE
 
 
You really do have to RUN, not walk over there.
 
Right  .  Now

AFTER
 
 
Here's the key to her new gathering place.
 
Do tell her that Linda@Creekside sent you, ok?
 
And by the way, I'll be giving away TWO copies of Myquillyn's book away in the days ahead
at my Autumn Nesting Delights House Party.

Just too fabulous.

  1. Oh my! I will definitely head over there. Is that really the same space? I need that kind of miracle for my basement. :) Thanks for sharing this today, Linda. Praying you have a blessed week.

    1. Glorious, isn't it?

      I appreciate that you're praying. And please know I'm lifting you up, too, as you head off to Guatemala.

      Brave you are, friend ...

  2. I've always wanted to do that to a barn or old church, Linda. My hubby would have a "cow" if I came to him with the idea. But my biggest question is - does she live there? I'll be visiting her blog to read more. But it seems to me that with the metal walls and no insulation she'd be mighty hot or cold depending on the season. Of course she may live in a beautiful climate zone that's 70 degrees all year 'round, but that ain't my experience in the midwest! Love the transformation, though! It reminds me that we never should judge a book or barn by it's cover or in this case, by its' walls!

    1. The Nester's blog is one of my favorites! So out-of-the-box creative and downright fun.

      She and her husband are redoing their home ... this barn is separate ... and yes, they live down south.

      Wouldn't that be so neat to re-do an old barn or church? mmm ...

  4. I absolutely love the transformation but my big question is where can I get the fabulous disco ball she has on the table!!! I'm going to be scouring thrift stores now for that so I can pay homage to my favorite decade of music!!! ;-)

    1. And if you get hold of one of those babies, it can travel from room to room ... Nester's has appeared online in most every room in her home.

      Just too fun!

  5. BLUE! I love blue. They say that is God's favorite color because everything in creation has a hew of blue in it. don't know if that's true, but man does that barn pop. Beth, If your husband has a cow I know a barn he might like. Teeeee heeee. LOL Funny ~ Chris

  6. I know! I saw the barn redo this morning and COULDN'T BELIEVE!! Gorgeous! She has such a great eye for design and yet keeps things simple and not too overwhelming.
    I'll be keeping an eye out for your giveaway, I would love to get her book. :)

    1. No rows of white plastic chairs there! She's created such a home-y relaxing haven to gather in.

      I'm glad you'll be joining us for the house party, Alecia. Spread the word!

    1. That's for sure! Wouldn't you love to share in one of her gatherings? Ah ... to live down south!

  8. Wow! There are really no words to say to do justice for that transformation. I do wish I had that touch in my decorating but maybe if I win a book it will help???? Have a beautiful day!

    1. We all have that knack. I really believe it! Sometimes we just need permission to go there, to throw off all those worn and weary traditional expectations and truly express who we are in the spaces we live in.

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...

Linda
