Trending upward is the repurposing of old barns for living quarters, restaurants and even art venues. Barns are becoming more visible thanks to the creative efforts of “quilt trail” enthusiasts. If you are not familiar with quilt trails, they are a growing phenomenon of tourism in may places .Here is how it works: People with barns on their properties are putting up painted quilt designs on their structures. People follow the “quilt trail,” learning more about the history of barns, how they are used agriculturally or otherwise, and they entice people to become more familiar with their rural surroundings. It’s all good as far as we are concerned!
Stained glass can be used to make a real statement in old barns that have been re-purposed. We can only imagine this sweet little barn with stained glass installation in the two rounded windows – it sure would kick it up a notch even further! Custom, hand forged craftsmanship always goes hand in hand with barns!
Here are a few more examples of barn stained glass installations.
