Reclaimed Barn Doors

Repurposed Barn Doors

They make for a great interior element as a door, room divider, or window covering.

Create a "shabby-chic" feel with neutral tones paired with clean white accents

For small spaces, a sliding door may be more practical than a swinging door, here it is paired with modern elements to create a nice contrast.

In a larger room, the horizontal pattern of these doors give a warm feeling as a room divider. These doors also would be great to absorb sound in a big space

Rachel Rodwell - PODTEX

My biggest problem with "Coffee Pods" has been the excessive packaging, and wasteful nature of individually encased servings of coffee grounds. It is refreshing to see someone doing something about it! 

Rachel Rodwell's branding of PODTEX will be Launching July 1st and I cant wait to see what she comes up with next!
