Friday was my 31st birthday, and I celebrated the way any self-respecting woman should – going out to dinner at Olive Garden and seeing a movie of her choosing with her husband.
I’m officially an old woman.
Further revealing this point – when Ryan asked what I wanted for my birthday, I said I wanted him to be my manservant for a day – to do all the projects I’ve been wanting to do around the barn without any eye-rolling, questioning or interruptions.
Best. Gift. Ever.
Seriously, Ryan was such a good sport. Especially since buying a gift from Amazon would have been cheaper and easier for everyone involved.
So, one of the simpler projects was this quick and simple jewelry holder for the barn. When an old rake head broke off, we found that this was the perfect way to repurpose it.
Isn’t it cute? We ended up putting it in the bathroom, which is probably not the ideal location (due to moisture). But there was literally no other place in the barn where we could drill into a stud and where it would be high enough to keep us from impaling ourselves on the spikes.
So, we’re counting on the vent working well and going with it for the time we’re living here.
Mostly of my jewelry has been in a storage box since November, so this is a total improvement. I’ve already worn two necklaces I didn’t even remember I had.
In other news, here’s the other side of the bathroom. The towel holder was made by our friends Pam and Dave from an old frame and branches. It’s the cutest, right? Not to be outshone by Henry tub photos. (I could die from the cuteness.)
P.S. None of this is a surprise if you follow me on Instagram. I tend to not be able to keep anything a secret so I shared our new jewelry holder in real time this weekend.
