Well, we did it. Big Red finally got her full makeover. It took some time...can't rush a gal when she's trying to look her absolute best. :)
Big Red when we first moved in:

Big Red all done:
One of the really neat things is we'd heard a rumor that Big Red was built in 1918. (She originally was on a different property and moved to her current resting spot in the 1960s.) Guess what we found when we pressure washed her paint off?
The outlines of "1918" right under the hayloft doors.
It is only right that we re-painted those numbers back on the barn.
I'd say that ol' gal looks pretty darn good for being almost 100 years old.
Her sisters got a makeover, too.
