|Vintage Rose Mural|
This mural, in the Vintage Rose Suite, proved to be a dramatic, yet soft transformation. My first step was to change the vanilla-colored walls to Sherwin Williams color number 6213, Halcyon Green. For the mural I drew a base line 36" from the floor. I also determined the width and placement of the background. I researched how to paint clouds on youtube.com then began my adventure. I hand painted the clouds, hills, and foreground, then stenciled the trees with a mural stencil set from cutting edge stencils. Their video for the mural stencil set, on their website, is very helpful.

Additionally, the old vinyl flooring, installed in 1997, was removed - hallelujah! For the flooring tile, we chose tile that looks like rough sawn barn planking. It's just fun to look at! Finally, I stenciled the back wall for a truly garden feel.

Additionally, we installed new carpets in several other guest rooms.
Take the opportunity to visit Ohio's Amish Country. When doing so, be sure to visit the Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast. We will be happy to give you a tour through any unoccupied rooms.
Stays at the Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast include a hot country breakfast and an area orientation. Plan several days in Amish Country, as there is much to see and do. This is the largest community of Amish in the world. There is no zoning in Holmes County, so Amish entrepreneurs can be found on many of our back road county and township roads.
