your barn door's open!


after 3 long days of painting with rollers, brushes and teeny-tiny detail paint brushes...

it is finally complete!

Here is the coop the way we bought it:

Crystal, the owner, does an amazing job! 

and after much deliberation,

(so many fun colors to choose from)

we went with fate... the $5 can on sale that someone left behind

I think "the girls" are going to love their new home.

Now all they need is an antique crystal chandelier up top and some swanky fine linens for afternoon tea.


due to the inspiration of Crystal (owner of the knotty bird company and builder of our fine coop)
and her amazing gardens,

my favorite guy created a little veggie garden for us too.

(that's my DH gardening in the background)

We are going to grow corn, tomatoes, beans, lavender (I hear it is good in cookies) zucchini, cucumbers, carrots and who knows what else. 

I love our little farm by the ocean!

While I LOVE your chicken coop, I am ADORING your garden plan! It is brilliant! I'm going to show it to my husband and have him create something like it for us. BRILLIANT!

Miss you!

How cool. I think the girls will just love it! Which one is the boy?
You think Aaron might swing by Texas and make me one of his porch gardens?

Who knew a coop could be so... pretty? What a little paint and hard work can do!
Nice to meet you! I'm off to find a follow button.

Very cool coop! Little chicks are going to love that home! All we've ever used are old dark mini-barns! You're going to love using the "leftovers" the chickens leave in that nice garden bed!
