Barn doors

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Barn doors

Postby Bigdog » Wed Nov 02, 2011 1:16 pm

My sliding barn doors have taken the brunt of years of exposure. This year at the tug I noticed that there was very little white paint left on them:

So I undertook a little project:

Sanded off the rust:

Good coat of primer:

Back to white:

Starting with a big red I:

And voila!:

Finished!

Maybe next spring we'll try a circle cub emblem on the shop door.

Looks great! Out here I probably would have needed a permit for an oversize sign. :lol:

Cecil - doors have been painted for several weeks but it was 65 yesterday and 67 today with bright sunshine. I laid the logo out starting at about noon yesterday. Had it painted by 4:30. Then did some touch-up this morning and stripped the masking tape just after noon today.

It got up to 60 here today. I'm starting to get antsy about the trip to DSCF and it's still over 3 months away.
