The previous owners of our home, did us a huge favor and left several small cans of paint, extra tile and base boards for us to use . Not overwhelming amounts, just enough grout and shingles and things to match, in case we needed a little fix up.
Yesterday, we took one of the quart cans of exterior paint and had it matched and bought a gallon.
Today, I used half the gallon. A super easy, quick Monday “makeover”.
To a rather dreary, dark , unloved spot in our front yard, I painted the gate and small portion of the fence. Then since the brush was still in my hand, I touched up the railing on the porch and a couple of places that needed a bit of sparkle and light.
1.5 hours (including clean up and picture-taking) and ta-da! Before and after .
Tomorrow I will add the second coat.
This gate and fence will be replaced next year. Until then, nothing wrong with a little make up to hide the flaws.
I sort of swoon over quick and easy before & after(s). Boy Howdy, I already completed this on a Monday with only one cup of coffee!
I have to wonder, what on earth will I be able to accomplish the rest of the week?
Bring it on!
I kind of have a hankering to make some peach Bar B Que sauce and I want to put a coat of primer white on some doors. Not at the same time……….could get messy.
Love to hear how your week is shaping up. In this together, friends.
