|The entryway mural, based on the original farm, which was also a sheep farm.|
|A gathering of ornies and antiques. Check my website for the apples and pears, and vegetables. Fun for anytime of the year.|
|Dear Odie, likes to rest on the rug at the entrance.|
|The baskets are used to store hats, mittens, gloves, while the drawers store emergency candles, matches and misc. items that are needed for those power outages that number far too many in the winter. Be prepared in style!|

Here I took a new table, painted it black, distressed it and put it into action. One thing this old barn does not have is storage. I added baskets on the bottom shelf for storage of hats, mittens and work gloves, and scarves.
Each of the drawers has been assigned a purpose. One has emergency candles and matches (for the those power outages which occur often in the winter), one with electric fence testing equipment for those time when you want to make sure the fence is at full strength or to ease your mind after a storm, and the thrid hold flashlights- both hand held and head mounted ( for when you need those hands free- as for working on the fence). My grown kids like the head mounted - especially Ted---an electrical engineering major. He grew to have an understanding of electrical things as he was the go to guy here on the farm for everything electrical. lol!!!!!
p.s. The lamp on top of the table is a functioning gas lamp---always thinking of those power outages they we seem to have too many of here in the winter.
