Seeing Red

There's nothing like a big red barn.


I pass this one quite frequently and love it.
 My barn is all white...as is every other building on the property except one.
This one.

Is was built by the previous owners as a chicken coop. I can see it directly out the window of my living room from the spot of my usual seat.

It was ugly and since changing the barn color was not an practical option...





.....I worked with what I did have.


And there you have it. A dreamer's version of the big red barn above.

Gorgeous scene of that big red barn! You did a wonderful job on revamping your chicken coop. Now it only needs a cupola, and your dream version will be very close to the big red barn.
