Almost there! DIY Chicken Coop Progress
Our chicken coop is functionally pretty much finished. Now I just want to dress it up a little bit and make it look real nice. Real nice. :) We sprayed it with some protective stain and sealer and I'm not sure about the results.
It just looks kinda dark and I miss the contrast of the light wood with the black brackets. I wanted it to look kinda old and rustic to fit in with our pergola in the back, but now I'm thinking it's looking too old and too rustic. Kinda forgotten and unloved. haha, okay... I'm not really sure what to do from here. Maybe some bark and plants around it will brighten it up? Hang a couple solar lanterns? Just give up and paint it? I dunno. Blugh. Just tell me to shut up and enjoy our dang fancy chicken coop!
Well I'll let you know how it goes. I'll also show you all the progress pics and our 7 (yes 7!) beautiful little chickens.
