No fancy crib to show – but it’s tidy, and functional. Come for a mini tour!
With a brand new barn comes some serious organizing.
After two separate spider bombs, countless swipes with the long dust pole along the ceiling, (and walls, ugh.) and various exercises with the vacuum, – the tack room looked presentable.
Well, that was at the old barn. Starting out anew at a barn with not one single hook installed on the walls was a different challenge.
If you need to hang blankets and saddle pads on racks in a modular barn, without making any holes, try flipping the racks upside down and squeezing them into the metal edging. Looks different, but works great.
As for hanging bridle hangers without making permanent holes in the walls? Two magnetic hooks that fit perfectly into each hole on the bridle hanger is one way!
I love how it worked out, and they are strong enough to hold everything up. Just a tip if you are looking for something temporary that still works good.
The wood is so fresh, sap is now starting to come out of it a little. I imagine this will go on for a few summers.
To protect the tack, there’s now a back splash installed behind.
As the most impatient crafter ever in history, this is not professionally made in any way. Cardboard, painted on the back to make it last a bit longer, then material glue gunned on to it.
The tacky look is complete by using double folded scotch tape to get it up on the wall!
Boots stored this way to keep the shafts straight. And to keep certain doggies from marking them! Not saying any names here but…
Ignore the dead dog on the side there.
My niece made me a wonderful fleece saddle cover when she came over from Sweden last summer. I love it and it reminds me of her. Sadly I’m already working on destroying it, so perhaps I’ll have to get a new one for when Valiosa gets a new saddle.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a tip for a good tack room? Let me hear it!
I’ve been to many, but love to get new ideas!
