So it's back to work today for me, I've had a few busy days and well that just goes without saying with me......I think I might grow moss under my feet if I stood still too long.......I thought I would take it easy yesterday (hahahhaha!) and maybe just cut out my fabric for Jane's rag quilt but well........sometimes the best laid plans go awry! I had no intention of painting but I went outside in the morning to water the plants and took a look at the outside lights around the house and knew I had bought paint to touch them up, because really I would like to buy new ones but at the moment I haven't found any that I like enough to buy and since my last name isn't Rockefeller or Gates, buying the ones I "REALLY" like from Restoration Hardware aren't an option......so I just got out my tiny tin of Tremclad high gloss black and went to work.....tedious but worth the effort.
|much nicer than old and rusty|
|these on either side of the garage door were|
very faded so shiny black is
soooo much more attractive
|even the garage door handle |
didn't escape the transformation
|The front door entry all cleaned up,|
much better than burgundy
|Front of the house, still a little burgundy|
going around the fascia
|These are the dining room windows,|
last bit still to do but too much vinery around
so I may cut it back next week and get this
done before Pam comes to visit!
|The last thing to do is the lattice....can we say NOT! |
and just buy new white plastic .....yes I think so my dear!
