Finished Product

Original Trunk

Taped with Frog Tape, so I could spray the trunk, leaving the bands unpainted, so I could later paint those.

The taping and trimming with brown tasks were time-consuming, but we loved the end result. It will sit in a spare bedroom, so guests can set their suitcases on it. Thus the old will meet the new!

Old Plates

Ready for guests. These plates, my wife got from her mother!

Ye Olde Pump

I suspect the pump was used years ago, but not the outhouse!


This title will need an explanation for most people, but probably not for most people who speak the Pennsylvania Dutch dialect of German.

An Ayrshire is a breed of dairy cattle that originated from Ayrshire in Southwest Scotland before 1800. In Pennsylvania Dutch “shiah” or loosely pronounced shire means, barn. Therefore since this old barn is letting lots of air through it is called an Ayrshire (airbarn), connecting the English and Pennsylvania Dutch to get the name of a farm animal. I suspect this would be considered a “meme!”
