Metal Barn Makeover for my Spring Centerpiece

The metal barns I've purchased over the years  have been real work horse's in my decorating projects     I've altered their appearance many times in order to incorporate them into my seasonal and holiday decor.     This time  I have turned one of my barns into a Flower Market to use as the star of a centerpiece I am creating for the family dining room table.

I have altered some of my barns by putting white metal look wallpaper on the roof. 

I also like to find new architecture for them on Pinterest,   print it off on my home printer,  and attach them to the barn with magnetic metal tape 

Here is the front of the barn......

the back side of the barn..... 

 this side of the barn......

and the other side of the barn.

I found this sweet little live plant at the nursery the other day.....can't wait for the Spring flowers to arrive!


Now that the centerpiece is completed,   I need to set the table for a small dinner party I'm having in a couple of days. 

 Be back soon with lots of photo's of my tablescape & the family dining room!


  1. Love the barn!!! How femine it is and sweet.
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. What a cute idea thanks Penny.

  3. Very cute idea, I know I madly print things for my dollhouses..and have huge files of seasonal stuff to use there! Love the flower shop idea in a barn! Hugs, Sandi

  4. So adorable Penny! I bet is was such a fun project to work on! Thanks for sharing over at Tuesday Turn About!

  5. The white wallpaper looks like the old, decorative tin tiles that people put on walls and ceilings 100 years ago. It gives the barn a pretty, vintage vibe.

  6. Penny,
    what a difference in the Barn!!! It looks fantastic!! You are so imaginative!!
    Stay safe, healthy and happy!!


It makes my day to hear from my friends!
