Today we painted the Feed and tack room doors. Inside and out on one, just the outside on the other. We went to Lowes yesterday and got paint. It is gray with just a touch of blue tint.



How does it look next to the old tin?



I painted one side and edges of the door latch pieces.



Husband says we should paint the green corner trim so it will match the doors and old tin. I like the used-scrap-look of the green corner trim.

What do y’all think? Green or paint it?

I say: If you have time, energy, weather is cooperating... paint it. It will extend it's life. And it will provide yet an other note of contrast against the weathered tin. But, I'd not use the gray. I'd choose a contrasting color that will add a note of POP!!!

My first thought for the doors was something like bright red, deep purple or yellow. My second thought was what it would look like with layers of dust and dirt on it. You see what I chose...…. @Lazy Gardener what color do you suggest for the trim

I'm fond of green. I'd stick with that dark green, but give it a nice new coat to seal the wood. Or, perhaps a dark cranberry red.

Grey is such a neutral color that you could use just about anything. The kicker will be choosing a color that will complement the rustic appearance of the tin. I'd take a paint chip of the grey to the hdw store, and see what colors jump out at you. A lot depends on your color preferences. Do you like a lot of color pop? What colors would complement the other details of your yard?

The green edge trim was some metal pieces a neighbor had and gave to me. They are kinda beat up looking, to me it goes with the beat up old tin. I love bright colors. If I were to paint it, I would probably go with a bright color. Hmmm maybe the green looks better. LOL

I finally went back to the barn to work on the door latch. I had a LOT of help from a well qualified Snoopervisor.

Surely you don’t think you can do this without ME!

Stop messing with those stupid power tools and pay attention to ME and ONLY ME!

I did get one door latch made due to all the expert help I had. I need to sand down the sliding bolt so it will slide. LOL I’ll borrow Robert’s belt sander and make it work.

Every time I see a pic of Prince being a little bit of a PIA - I'm so glad you rescued him. He is a big ol bundle of love!

I have never, ever had a horse that wanted to hang around with people as much as he does. He is a PIA, but he sure makes me laugh.
