As a Tennessee Wedding Photographer, I am always looking for wedding inspiration. And maybe it is because I am a born and raised southern girl, but there is just something about southern chic that just melts my heart! Anyone who knows me knows that I become weak in the knees when a bride uses burlap in her wedding reception details. But can we also talk about old barnwood for a moment?
I ran across this Etsy shop yesterday while surfing the site. I probably spend more time on Etsy than I do on Pinterest. But look at these hand painted barnwood signs that Kim Hartman of Craft Mart Texas is selling in her Etsy shop! Somebody needs to come pick me up off the floor right now. Would these type of signs not make the cutest details at a wedding? Imagine using them at your gift table, candy bar, cocktail station, photo booth, etc.
My father recently acquired about 200 acres of land that originally belonged to my Great, Great, Great Grandfather. Sitting upon this land is an old barn that is falling apart. The only thing holding it up actually is the fact that four Sweet Gum trees have grown up around it and are pressing into the sides of this barn! One of these days my father is going to cut down those four Sweet Gum trees and let this barn fall to the ground. I have already claimed stake on the wood pile that will be left to sift through. Yes internet… barnwood excites me just as much as burlap. It is a deep dark secret of mine!
But until my father decides to let that barn fall to the ground, I will have to stalk this Etsy store. I am already trying to figure out how I can possibly use them in my own home to decorate. I may need these in my kitchen and bathrooms! Barnwood can be mixed with black and white damask, right? I say yes!
