Chicken Coop Makeover


Our chicken coop got a make-over this week!  Our next-door neighbors were getting rid of an old window, and they offered it to us since it was the perfect size for the hen house.  My husband cut a hole, attached the window, and then cut a nice frame out of trim we’d removed from a bedroom in the house.

A while back, I’d scored some returned exterior paint at the home center for $0.50/jar – one orange, one yellow.   We were thinking they’d be perfect for adding a sunshine or moon and stars…something to dress up the coop.  However, I have zero sense of composition, and my friend, Jenni, came to the rescue this morning and painted me a sunshine and also painted the little window.    Thank you, Jenni!!!
