A New Season

Before photo shows Amish man on mechanical lift.
 More than autumn leaves are changing color at The Barn Inn. In September we scraped and painted the 1900’s original Gehrig house located beside the inn. The existing blue roof presented a challenge and, in my opinion, offered only one reasonable color palate – warm natural tans. 

The old farmhouse looking good again!
 To compliment the blue roof, I chose an orange-tinged red for the doors, then added gold on the banister for additional interest and cream for trim. What was once a very “ugly” roof, now looks great and blends harmoniously with the sky above.

Thank God for Sherwin Williams and the power of paint to transform!
