Barn Flag

 Our Granary.....After.
 Folk Art Barn Flag.

  We made the folk art barn flag ourselves.
From a piece of corrugated, galvanized steel.
I taped off the stripes and painted them, and my sweet hubby painted the star.
When all the paint was dry, I gave the entire flag a wash with brown glaze.

 Took a little team work to get the barn flag in place.
 Once it was positioned just right, Spencer and my sweet hubby screwed it into place using decking screws.
This little rock chuck watched our place to see what was going on.
She lives in the neighbors field.

Perhaps, because we put the folk art flag on our granary, it should be referred to as the granary flag .
But, then again... has anyone ever heard of a granary flag?

Attitude of gratitude:
~I'm grateful for the way our family works together to get projects done.
What is important to one, is important to all, and we always work together.
~I'm grateful that we had a few rain showers last night. It will help me today, as
I continue to rake, level and prepare the courtyard in front of the granary.
~I'm grateful that my sweet hubby took me for a ride out to Pigeon Hollow road to look for
old bottles for the garden project that I'm working on. Man, does he ever have patience with me.

  9. This is just the neatest flag! I'm thinking as I type of where I could hang one here at my house. Hmmmmm. Gotta have one and I just saw a large star like that the other day at a flea market. Will be going back for it. Great job, Kerin! It looks wonderful on your granary!

  10. I love the barn flag. What a neat idea!

  12. Hi Kerin: I'm you newest follower, although my picture didn't show up under your followers. Thank you for visiting the Cottage and I've been looking at your past posts. When I saw the flag on you granary, I was hooked. I used to decorate with the american folk art spirit but when we went 'Victorian' that changed a little, although you can still find a piece or two lurking in the shadows. I love your home and look forward to seeing and hearing more of you..Happy Weekend..Judy

  13. What a great idea!! I may have to 'borrow' this from you and have one put on our hay barn, which is in dire need of a new paint job but a new flag will make it look much better!

  14. I love it!!! Can I order one?! LOL I may try to copy this on a smaller scale for my shed. Very cool! Thanks for sharing, Kerin.

  15. What a great barn!!! But I love your flag. So creative and looks fantastic. It couldn't have been placed in a better spot.

  23. Gorgeous! What a neat project! I always wanted to paint a quilt on my old barn but never did. Maybe my next farm.
    I love your gratitude list. I journal for an hour each morning and I've been doing it for many, many years now. I always list 10 things I'm grateful for. I could list more but I'd never get out of bed! LOL!
