Barn doors

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:

Who is this handsome artist?

And voila!:

Finished!

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

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.
