Random pictures Friday

I have decided that on Friday's that I would start posting random pictures. These are just different pictures that I have taken.

This is the big red barn that is on our farm. Have you ever saw a washtub hanging on a barn? This washtub has been around a long time. We used to have a wood burning heating stove in the house and we would fill this tub full of wood to heat the house.

This is my youngest baby. He is my husbands twin but only a smaller version. He is a character! The 3 guys that I live with make my world go around.
I love them so much!

When he sees this picture I don't have to worry about him ever wearing a bow again. For some reason when our family came over for Christmas several of the men wore this bow.

This is one of my other babies. I think he was wanting me the scratch his back. Maybe he thought I had treats.

This is Ole Boy. I introduced him to you in one of my earlier posts. I forgot to tell you that Boy has a best friend. Its King! You can see him in the picture. These 2 are never far from each other. They have been together for years.

Open fields. Come spring these will turn into beautiful crops that will help feed many families.

Hope you have a Great weekend. We are preparing for more winter weather. My sons love it because they get to go sledding.
Many Happy thoughts on this freezing Friday!!

Old Barn Wood Bench

I have been busy working on different projects lately. I have not had time until the last few days to work on a bench that my husband made.

This bench started out as a table but it turned into a bench. My husband started out making a table out of some old barn wood we had lying around in our garage. The table didn't turned out like he wanted it to. So it became a bench.

I painted stars on the back and underneath the seat. This gives it a special touch.

I think this table looks so much better as a bench. I think it turned out Great!

For Sale $125.00

Many happy thoughts on this very chilly Thursday !

Love for Barn Signs

I have been working on a sign for my niece this week.

This one I put the date underneath it. I think the date adds a special touch to the sign.

Look at that barn wood. The color turned out great.

I think it turned out wonderful. I can't wait to see it in her house.

I could not post this without showing you a picture of my niece that I made the sign for. She has the most beautiful family. We are so proud of her.

I know some of you are probably digging out from the winter storm. I hope you are safe and warm. Many happy thoughts from Barn Creations!!

Small Chest Before/After

I have been working on a small chest that has been in sitting in our garage for awhile. I finally got the time to finish it.

This is what it look like before.

This is after I primed it with Kilz, sanded it, and painted it twice.

It was missing a knob so I replaced all the knobs. I love these knobs I found on clearance at Lowes.

I roughed up the edges.

I think it turned out beautiful! The silver knobs look great with the black.

Its not the breaths you take. The breathing in and out. Its the moments that take your breath away. (George Strait)
Happy Tuesday!!!!

Old Water Fountain

At one of the houses on the farm the renters recently moved out. We had to do some work on the house before someone else moves in. While we were working we ran across this.

Daddy D( my husband) fell in love with this. I told him it needed to go in the trash.He loaded in our truck. He said "I can do something with it".

He painted it and put it back together. You could see in the above picture that it was broken and needed lots of work.

This is the fountain after. I will have to say it turned out beautiful. I can't wait until spring to plant flowers around it. He will hook water up to it and the water should come out the pot the lady is holding.

What a beautiful JUNK find!

Hope your weekend has been a good one!
