Bedroom Remodel: No Progress But Something To Show

We've been so busy with kidding, the chicken coop, and the garden, that we haven't done a thing on the bedroom since we bought the carpet. It's still sitting as a huge roll in the dining room, but every time we have to step over it to get to the dining table (which is pushed over against the far wall), we say we really must do something about it. Even so, I have something I've been meaning to show you - the closet doors!

Whoopty-do, what's so special about closet doors? What's special is what Dan did to them! This was his winter creative project, a woodburning on each door.





For enlarged images, you can visit Dan's pyrography blog and click on the individual photos.

He needs to finish staining and finishing, and then they can be hung permanently. At the rate we're going that may take awhile. :)

Leigh,

These closet doors are gorgeous!!!! They are very special doors, no doubt about it. Dan did a beautiful job burning these doors.
Now he needs to sign them!!!

How lovely! Here is New England many of the really old houses have artwork as part of the actual house - like landscape murals painted on walls - but I don't think I've ever seen woodburned landscapes anywhere. They are beautifully executed. Well done Dan!

Your husband is really creative and talented. The door will look beautiful when hang. Hope you get round to putting your carpet in soon.

Dan is very talented. Those are beautiful!

They are breathtaking! Yes, you could make good money renting Dan out! The problem would be that YOUR place would be in ruins. Maybe we can just be satisfied ogling his talents from the internet!

The doors are beautiful.

Still on hold here for my garden as we are in hail season. :(

They are so beautiful. You both have accomplished a lot of things recently, even if it doesn't seem like it. It takes time to care for 5 acres and critters and live as well. Have a great weekend!

Wow. Those look really great. One of these days I need to uncover some creative outlet. Right now I'm too busy finishing a masters degree, caring for children, running a farm, working etc. I'm getting tired just typeing all of it. LOL.

Great job on the doors Dan!

O.M.G.!!!!! What wonderful artwork!! How have I not realized before now what an artist Dan is? I took a look at his blog and I'm just amazed. Does he sell these items?

Debby Riddle said...

Just Awesome!

Mama Pea said...

Oh. My. Gosh! To say your closet doors are a work of art is a gross understatement. One of a kind and such a treasure! Just beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Amazing doors! There must be a market for them for extra income.

Woolly Bits said...

Dan will be getting a big head and justifiably so! Pretty cool artwork.

Beautiful. Those doors are so special! Nancy

Michelle said...

If you ever have to move, I sure hope you take those wonderful works of art with you!

Just a quick thank you to everyone for your kind comments. Yes, he does sell them (occasionally) but it doesn't seem to be the sort of thing that can bring in a regular sort of sideline income. And it would be impossible to every get paid what the pieces are "worth" in terms of hours spent creating them!
