Working on Bella’s barn some more.

I forged some hinges for Bella’s play barn this last weekend. Tonight I put a second coat of paint on the exterior and hung the door.

I will use some 'junk' nails I picked up on freecycle that have no points for the hinge pins

I have to make a door handle for the barn door. I will try to match the hinges. Eventually I would like to make a proper door latch, but my blacksmithing skills aren’t there yet.

I need to put a  2nd coat of paint on the inside and all the trim. The roof needs a few more pieces made up, and the door and sides will get some white trim to make it look more ‘barnish’..

    1. Me neither! I plan on adding a silo and 2 wood sheds. That should give it a very ‘barn’ feel. I may make a small white picket fence and put a bit of garden in it for a ‘field’.
