Painting day # 1


So what got painted today? Absolutely NOTHING. Well, I shouldn't say that. In the last hour or so of work one and a half sides of the house got primed. Kiwi's husband is helping us out. We are thrilled to have extra hands, and they are thrilled to have extra money, so it's a win-win situation. One and a half sides of the house got seriously pressure washed, scraped, loose paint peeled off, and cracks filled. (You have NO idea- I'll post pictures tomorrow of the sheets of paint we peeled off.) My husband even did some stucco work. We had several unplanned trips to the store to get forgotten items. (Like trim paint-good thing Kiwi's husband was here to be the voice of reason about painting the trim first so it doesn't drip on the darker house paint. Gravity works, you know!) I'm hoping tomorrow some painting will take place, but it is going to take a while to get the whole house done. Here are some more picture for your entertainment.
It just kept peeling, and peeling, and peeling....


This bright turquoise is the REAL color the house used to be. Nice huh? You can see a bit of the pink in this picture too.
Pin It!
