Occasionally, though, I get a happy reminder that this is not always the case. My friend Kristie sent me this picture of a one stall barn she's built into a bookcase.Kristie asked me if I could make a stall guard for Midnight's door. She sent me this picture for reference,and this is what I came up with.
I simplified the design a bit by leaving off the buckles. I hadn't originally planned to do that, but none of the photo etched buckles in my stash fit the ribbon properly. Sometimes you just have to go with what works.
One last picture of Kristie's barn. This sign hangs above a shelf in her tack room.
