When we started thinking about building our barn, I, of course went straight to Pinterest to look for barn ideas. This one made me stop in my tracks.
I love it.
A classic barn is just not complete without a cupola and weathervane and big sliding cross-buck doors.
But what really adds so much elegant country flair is the fresh white paint, the overhangs on both sides with the clipped corners that create an arch shape and the ambiance of a barn that has stood the test of time.
This is the pasture where the barn will go. Up until now, we used the pasture to grow hay or to ride our squads in. The barn will be a beautiful addition to our farm.

I found some of the most amazing antique finds for the barn.
A vintage weathervane complete with gunshot holes in it. Vintage lighting for the loft, and a gorgeous vintage chandelier that shines through the large windows in the front of the barn.
Two amazing old barn lights that were perfect for the birds beaks in the front and the back of the barn. Wondering what a birds beak has to do with a barn?
A birds beak is the part of the roof that overhangs at the gable of the roof.
Barns are simple yet beautiful structures that can be both practical and aesthetically pleasing.

But, my favorite vintage finds that I found for the barn is a pair of old horse sconces. They are spectacular.
I couldn’t believe that I found a matching pair.
They had a tag on them that said that they were from an old mansion outside of Chicago. You can see the post about these vintage finds here.
