Week 13 - Spray Painting

Looks like some more branches down in the last storm.

We've decided to go with the old "addition by subtraction" and tear down the shed rather than attempt to repair it.

Behold the spray painter! Woo hoo!

The Mr. borrowed this from his son and it is like magic.

Just tape up the windows and spray! What used to take several days, now gets done in a few hours.

After all the crying about the wall colors on the last house, this one is getting plain old white on every wall. Kind of dull to my taste, but it seems to be what home buyers want.

Big improvement in the kitchen (and requisite shot of the chandelier).

Remember the family room before with that nasty dark wood?

Here it is now all cleaned up and spiffy.

Oops, looks like some overspray there.

And the front door is now.... green! Very happy.

After some back and forth over what to do about the front stoop, I suggested paint and a big welcome mat. Much easier than jackhammering the bloody thing up and doing a fresh pour.

  1. Lookin' good. The door in the Family room is very pretty, and I like that green front door. Cheers!

  2. Nice!!! Glad to see the chandelier!! I should send my FED EX # so you can pack it up & send it to me!

  3. You're definitely making progress. Good idea about just sprucing up the concrete stoop. Sure hope Mango Master was wearing a ventilator or something when he was spraying all that paint.

  4. It amazes me that people want such boring white walls....

  5. Its looking nice and bright now. Love the front door. Its unusual to have a letterbox on the wall of a house over here. If you don't have a letterbox alongside your fenceline, the Postie will just ride on by.

    Hey, you couldn't post that spray painter over to Oz so we could freshen up our walls could you? I'm kinda getting sick of our "cream with a hint of slobber" colour hehehe. No worries, and love, Carol
