Today has been a BEAUTIFUL day from the beginning, ON !
Hubby and I started clearing off all the clutter on the back deck, including the hose reel attachment screwed to the side of it, and then we brushed off a lot of accumulated yuck. We pulled off most of the old latticework from down below-deck, and then hubby and I started cutting in the new porchfloor color.
It was frightening ! So orange ! This was supposed to look like an aged clay pot, I thought ! But it went on so shiny and bright ! I stuck in there and had faith, though, and after two complete coats and a quick drying in the bright sunlight, it now resembles a NEW clay pot...........which really isn't bad at all. I'm pleased with the finished look.
I left the big boards under the floorboards unpainted, intending to purchase another gallon of the white, and possibly white plastic latticework. I'll have to do some pricing before I make my decisions, but I'm thinking that I'd like those boards white. I didn't want a huge band of orange showing from the yard level.
Anyway, I have chicken thighs slowcooking, potatoes boiling for mashing, and French-style greenbeans simmering with new green onions. Not bad for a gal who went and tilled some more of that garden spot AFTER finishing the painting......huh ?
Love ya'll !
