I admit, the barn door was pretty primitive looking with years of dirt, grain, hay, and cobwebs! (If you ever need to clean anything really dirty, like old barn wood, I recommend using TSP according to the directions with a small hand brush.) I would not recommend deciding to clean a dirty, old barn door the week of a hurricane! Can you believe I carried that dirty old door upstairs to my bathroom and cleaned it in the bathtub! Hey, a girl’s gotta do, what a girl’s gotta do!
When the boys saw the completed project, they had to admit it looked pretty good! Even a few of their friends have complimented me on the barn door!And this is our 14 year old cockapoo, Ragamuffin (or Rags). He absolutely refused to budge from his comfy spot on the sofa for me to take these photos!
