I decided to paint inside the stalls, because I hate the look of muddy, poop smeared old plywood. So I chose poop brown for the bottom half, and used a cream/beige for the top half, to keep it from looking like a cave. I want to do a little running horse stencile along the color line to soften it a bit. Too much? Tough -- its my barn and I'll decorate it the way I want to. lol!
I left the upper 4 feet above the plywood plain pine, and I left the beams unpainted, too. I like the look of old beams. I'm thinking of putting a clearcoat over this, but havent' decided yet. Or more likely, I'm not yet over all the painting. I'm starting to begin to feel my right arm again. I had to wait 3 hours to brush my teeth after getting up in the morning or else my hand is so swollen I can't close my fingers and drop the brush. Now I'm down to about 2 hours. So improving :-)
