Grungy Old Barn Pics

 I mentioned in the previous post that I had acquired the neat old cupboard while taking photographs of an old 1700's house and barn. I thought I'd share some of the pics with you, so put on your play clothes and come walk through the barn with me.

Old whitewashed door

Water paddle for the cows
 I have a few of these paddles waiting for inspiration. Any ideas?

Stairs going to the hay loft

 There were cobwebs dripping off of everything. It's been so many years since the barn was in use.
Cracked plaster


Door slider
 I totally covet this slider. Hmm... midnight acquisition?  Nahh... too old to sleep in a jail cell.

More texture

Fan with vines
 I think it would be fun to turn the fan on.... no?
Hand hewn beams
 This was the view looking up into the loft. The wood is in pristine condition. What a beautiful house you could design around this lumber!

Sign painted over

Up the inside of the silo
 Very echo'y inside the silo. It went up about 60 feet and down another 15. Lots of little doors open into the silo to check on the grain at any level necessary.
 I hope you enjoyed your walk through the barn. Now scrape the cobwebs out of your hair and start thinking of what you might do with these pictures. Personally I took the majority of them for use as textures and backgrounds. Do whatever you like with them. You have my full permission to use them for personal or profit.  Just click on the picture and a larger version will open.


Best... Canace

Cool pictures...the slider is great. So much history here...looks like a very peaceful place. I can almost hear the wind blowing through the eaves.
