I didn't plan on a 'part two' for this post but our activities here yesterday just begged for one.
When you own your home, it requires you to take care of it, or it starts to get frumpy and unhappy. Then you get unhappy. Not good.
The last several years have been extremely busy ones, and we barely kept up with everything.
This month, inspired I am sure by the beautiful weather, we are churning out the projects.
Yesterday's projects are ones of not only necessity but of beautifying our space; we painted our exterior house doors.
The white door is our kitchen door that most folks enter into our house through. The other awful looking door is the basement door.
They are both red now too.
This girl here gave them each a thorough scrubbing before paint was applied to them.
Tim took the opportunity to do some caulking while the door was out.
The youngest two in our family did a great job priming and beginning to paint some T1-11 boards that Tim will be using tomorrow to rebuild the shed. Talk about a mess! That one is for sure! I will get some photos tomorrow of the process. Let me just say that Sarah (age 11) and Kyle (age 8) did a wonderful job and were very helpful.
Before she painted Sarah looked like this -
She had a costume long dress on over her tshirt and jeans and was wandering around our woods and pasture! She made herself her wreath of autumn leaves! What a beauty she is! I am so thankful for her!
I can't wait to show you some other projects that we have been working on around here!
