Look at this chippy goodness!
The pendant is from Pottery Barn. I got it at the PB Kids Outlet years ago. It's their fisherman's light and is similar to PB's current Marine Pendant. I'm diggin' the nautical feel of both the weathered wood and the pendant. It's a match made in heaven.
Now what really stinks is that we don't have enough barnwood to cover all the walls in the stairwell. So we're not quite sure what to do. Sitting here looking at it, I'm thinking we could do barnwood on the far wall then just regular pine boards on the side walls. We'd probably whitewash them, maybe even with a light color. Do you have any thoughts? Here are some inspiration pics I found on Pinterest of barnwood.
I like this whitewashed look. I definitely want to keep it light in the stairwell since there are no windows and it's a really tight space. The last thing you want is a dark color (or stain) on the walls--that'll make it seem even smaller.
I love how there's pot lights right in the barnwood. Isn't that a great modern look?
This one's hard to see, but you can make out the chippy barnwood they installed here.
Here's a better shot of the same room. They whitewashed the other wall...looks good, doesn't it?
And I just think this room looks so cozy. There's no way Mitch could even stand up in this room though;)
So whatcha think? Should we do more chippy white barnwood on the far wall or have all three walls the same? I need your help!
