This was an old barn door taken off a barn and turned into a picture frame. I took some pictures I had and made them have the old photo effect on my computer. I then glued the pictures on the door. Next I screwed it right into the studs in the wall. I love it!

Put a piece of glass on top to preserve it.Now I have a one of a kind western bar.I will try to figure out how to post a picture someday and show everyone. Posted: 3:41 pm on September 7th

Take care,
