I wish people around here would throw stuff away like you're able to find! The stuff I see is broken beyond repair or I just don't have a quick enough imagination. I also don't have a lot of room to put things. We downsized our home considerably when we moved to Florida. No basement, the garage is Hubby's. So, whatever I bring home has to go inside the house somewhere.

You lucky girl!

I love the color Barn Red...and I cannot find it now! I painted our shutters and a door that color several years ago...surprised that even our Home Depot doesn't have it...they tried matching it with a color I chose from their color chart...Nope, too pink...then to a paint store...I chose a darker color...Nope, it's too pinkish on the shutters...(I painted a small area) Walmart came closest to the color, but still, has a pinkish look...Now, what am I going to do with 2 gallons and a quart of outside pinkish-red paint??..ha
Good finds Mojo! and Debbie, I enjoyed looking at your web site.

ahh I got my barnyard red at the oops paint in homedepot ...let me see if i can get the code for you...this color is perfect no pink tinge...

RE: ahhh i love to trash pick lol

That is so true about the Barn Red paints! My spare room is this pinky mauve color-- very pretty (it was that color when I bought the house). And the name on the tin is... "Barn Red."

What in the heck kind of farmer would have a mauvy-pink barn, I cannot tell you-- But you can be sure the other farmers would keep their distance. :-)

RE: ahhh i love to trash pick lol

Your mauvy-pink barn reminds of my FIL. When they moved from town to farm in the mid-50's there was only a tacky "pole" barn (aka shed) As soon as possible, they built a decent barn. Since my FIL was a scavenger, you never knew what he'd drag home. Well, someone had dumped gallons of red & gallons of white paint in a spot along the road used for a dump site. Mixed together, there was enough for the barn. And they had the only pink barn in the countryside! My FIL had a great sense of humor!
