progress on the homefront

Friday night was spent in a paint store. I bought supplies for:
• painting the shutters, front door, and side door a dark purple
• putting a fresh coat of black on the railing
• painting our rain barrel (vision: dark green with light green leaf prints)

Of course the weather was hot, humid, rainy, or all of the above. None ideal for getting paint to dry. Therefore, I don't have any before & afters shots to share.

You'll have to be amused at the selection process for the purple. I actually brought leaves with me to the store! I went more dark than I did reddish.


  1. Can't wait to see it! I feel like such a slacker, in comparison

  2. Don't feel too bad. So far the paint is just sitting in the garage!
