Abandoned Barn

On one of my road trips I found this abandoned red and aqua barn.  Have you ever seen one this color?  I hadn't.  I drove in the driveway but didn't know if I should be there so only snapped a couple of photos and left.











Linking this to Barn Charm

Have a great week and I'll see you next time

Geneva said...

You find the most interesting barns... I've definitely never seen one like this one. Great Pictures!

Linda said...

I wonder if there was a special on paint!? Interesting combination, but I do like the shape of the top!

Beth said...

i love barns shaped like this ... too cool. so many different materials going on there too. fun! (:

Mari said...

I'm not sure about the aqua, but I like the rest of the barn. I can say I've never seen that combo before!

I don't think red and aqua go together, but somebody must have liked it. I love the shape of the barn and the stone foundation - minus the aqua.

Beth said...

A very neat barn. I imagine the aqua was a later paint job.

Terri Buster said...

Love the red- but someone got a little carried away with that greenish blue color on the bottom. Cool shaped barn!

Amy Burzese said...

That's an interesting one. I like it. Maybe they got leftover paint from a school, hospital, or government building. Lol

I love red barns, but the aqua is interesting. Haven't seen that combo before! I do like this barn's shape.

NO, I've never seen this color combination on a barn before. Its a shame someone had to abandon this barn. My Poppaw had a barn built much like this one. With the concrete blocks, it's built better than the house I lived in as a little girl.

Great shape to this barn.

An unusual and enchanting barn. Your photos/editing are terrific!

Jann Olson said...

Oh my, red and aqua are my two favorite color combos. I have used alot of it in my kitchen and family room. Such a unique barn.

Liz said...

Definitely worthy of a few snaps!! I love the red & aqua! Lovely images Barb!

Tricia Hays said...

Oh what a beauty... Aqua is very unusual, indeed... I think I would have painted it white, but hey, to each his own, ya know! LoL! Great barn find, for sure!

Thank you, Barb =)

Aqua on a barn is new to me!

I like the curved roof line. Nice composition.

Nancy Claeys said...

Interesting color combination -- makes me think they found the paint at a bargain price. :)

Deanna said...

Well, I love that color combo and apparently the owners did also. Great capture!!

From one Barb to another: Great barn! Terrific photos!

Little Dotty Bird said...

What an awesome looking barn! I love the shape of it! :)

Debbie said...

i see this shape in new jersey, but what an odd color combination!!

Rita said...

Very unique and original find. I have never seen a barn in my area of this shape and the color is so unusual.

Sad to see it just slowly going to rot by natures forces.

Linda said...

Love this barn...when I look at it I see a pair of eyes (top 2 windows) starring at me....Cool!

Marie said...

A very interesting barn! I love its shape!

Rose said...

No, never seen an aqua barn...but this one is a beauty and makes me wish I would find one around here.

Elaine said...

Definitely a different color combo. It's a nice-looking barn.

Sherri B. said...

What a unique color combination - I've definitely never seen that before. And you are so brave with your barn photo taking! :)

Kerin said...

Hi Barb!
Great barn, and no, I've never seen one painted like that.
The hay loft door is sorta bell shaped also... at least that's what it looks like to me.
So unique and so charming!

Smiles :)

That's a barn to remember. Lots of folks have a red, black or all natural but aqua and red. Way cool.

Thrifty farmer, sale on aqua paint? This is one of the best barn shapes no matter what color it comes in.

Donna Heber said...

Very interesting Barb. I don't believe I have ever seen an aqua colored barn. It has a rather nice shape to it.

Nancy Reinke said...

What a special barn this is. I love it.
