This is a one-time engagement, please do not ask me to come paint your house.
Mark took the edges, and the top boards. I took the middle, and on this wall, the boys took the bottom boards.
On this side, I actually did middle and bottom. After 2 hours of painting the boys were done.
After 4 hours of painting, I was REALLY done. I’m going to be so sore tomorrow, and guess what? I get to do it all over again, since we obviously need a 2nd coat.
Paint color is Crabby Apple, paint is Duration from Sherwin Williams. It’s their top of the line exterior paint. At $55/gallon I was sort of hoping it was going to fly out of the paint can and paint the house itself.
Isn’t that a great color name? I’m totally in love with it. Crabby Apple. Love the name, love the color. It is totally what I’ve had in mind for 3 years since we started this residing/rewindowing project.
Of course, by the time we are done painting this monster of a house, I may hate the sight of it. We’ve got a lot of house to go, and unfortunately, a lot of it will require scaffolding/ladders, and I’m not real find of either of those.
Time to take my achy body to bed. I also washed the front deck this morning, and sewed a bit, and wow, I’m kinda tired. I managed to go through almost an entire gallon of paint by myself. I’m not sure how much of the 2nd gallon Mark got through: I bailed on him and went to see a movie (The Proposal: funny, predictable, but enjoyable).
