January 9


This barn used to belong to a friend of mine, who built a new house and moved down the street. They had horses and stored the camper in it. After it was sold, a group from the college in our town asked to rent it to store instrument from the worship team, and also to have weekly practices. They also offered to paint it.
So it was painted - a pretty bright red, don't you think? And there are no animals - just college kids singing and playing!

Just goes to show: There are many uses for a barn.

What a way to repurpose!
Would have loved to have had a barn when my son was a teenager and in a band that practiced in one of my upstairs bedrooms. :)
Love the red and green!

Wonderful use for the barn. With its bright red paint and green roof it looks like it's ready for a celebration.

Barns are used for many things aren't they? I remember my parents talking about barn dances they attended when they were young. Nice photos!

It is very, very, bright!
Hope the college kids are, too.

I would NEVER have dreamed a bunch of collage kids would want to have anything at all to do w/ an old barn... but, goes to show what I know! Good for them & excellent paint job, too! My goodness, people never cease to amaze me!

Thanks for sharing this w/ all of us here at Barn Charm, Mari! =)
