Tabletop Metal Barn gets a Christmas Makeover

I've been working on this vignette on the stock tank buffet in the sunroom for DAYS....and Days.   I finally decided today to go ahead and take some photo's of it "as is"

I took my photo's and as I was editing them,    I suddenly realized what was wrong!

The tabletop barn that was the centerpiece of my vignette was incredibly BORING!

I took my boring metal barn and turned it into a cozy Bed & Breakfast.    

I started the transformation by giving the barn a new roof.     I had a partial roll of paintable stripable wallpaper left over that I had used to make the backsplashes for the kitchen.    

I'll just rip off my wallpaper roof if I decided later that I don't like it!

In my original vignette that I wasn't crazy about,   I had cows in front of the barn.    I thought deer would look better in front of my Bed & Breakfast so I dug out my deer and put away the cows.

I also had an idea that some of the guests at the B & B might be towing a trailer behind their pick up.    so I removed the cows from this side as well. 

It gets dark so early now!   
 It seemed like we had only got started before we had to call it a day

While I have been working on my vignette,    H has been getting the leaves cleaned out of the flower beds in front of the greenhouse.      

I am in hopes that tomorrow we can get more's hard to do when it doesn't warm up enough to work in the yard til noon and it gets dark at!



  1. I love the new roof it adds texture and the red truck with camper is so cute. Your Christmas decor is outstanding this year.
