Painted Barnwood

image1

One advantage of living on an acreage is having an old barn. My barn has siding over siding.

This board was on the ground, because the barn shows signs of age. I was about to add the board to a burn pile but decided to resurrect it. It has holes where nails once gave it a purpose.

I decided to paint flowers in bright colors on it. I used acrylic paint but it is hard to paint on this rough surface. The wood grain has deep grooves in it that you wouldn’t see in a new board you would buy. Barn wood is a popular way to decorate you home and adding a rustic charm.
