    Oh, I wouldn't paint that rusty tin either....gives character. I would paint the green trim around the door to either match the door or blend in the scratches and hinges. I vote for barn red on that trim....it's my fave for barns and outbuildings. :D

    And then your door or barn wall needs a barn quilt!

    I've been wanting to do one of these for our woodshed, as it's the only outbuilding that can be seen by the public...well...if the public takes our private drive back half a mile off the hard road. :D

    I love the barn quilt! Hmmm.....it would have to be a Lone Star quilt. I made one in 1986, red, white and blue with red prairie points.

    We had a big pine tree next to the barn turn brown and dead. So Russell our neighbor came over with his chainsaw and took it down. BJ raised him up in the tractor bucket so he could tie a rope around the tree, 12 feet off the ground. Then forward around another tree, sideways to another tree, then over the gate and tied to the tractor bucket. BJ kept tension on the rope, backing up as the tree started to fall. It fell right in front of the barn, MUCH better than on the barn, which it was leaning towards. The gate was closed to keep the horses out, or they would have come running in to see what we were doing.

    There was another dead tree on the fence line at the back, so we repeated the rope and tractor trick and it fell, away from the fence.

    Nice job. It's obvious there was little if any, room for error.

    It was in a difficult position, but it went down right where Russell wanted it to go.

    He gladly accepted lamb chops and pork chops for pay! LOL
