The Memorial Day weekend flew by in the blink of an eye. My husband and I both took an extra day off of work. So we enjoyed the perks of a 4 day weekend. We grilled out with some friends and family, ran in the rain after a nice dinner out, breakfast with my family and poolside with his family. But the weekend would not be the same had we not gotten a few things off of our mental to do lists. And my favorite part this weekend was painting.
Yes, I am one of those freaks who loves painting. It is like meditation to me. Give me a sad wall and I will make it fresh again. So while my dear friend Angela was at work I hustled up some leftover outdoor paint and snuck over to her house. I have been dying to give her front porch a little love. I took the truck over there and scrapped down the old paint. Then ran home and spray painted the numbers a fresh glossy black. Driving around in the truck I kept thinking to me myself how fun it would be to have my own repair business. Just a girl and her truck. About 2 hours later I was done. I had the best feeling of accomplishment. She doesn’t know it yet but next we are going to work on cleaning the windows to the porch.
My final project was on my own house. The exterior windows in my basement needed painting. It has always bothered me that they were painted black. I won’t lie I think all windows should be painted white. They are the eyes of your house. When they are dark it looks uninviting. So I hustled up that leftover paint again.
The most embarrassing part about this whole process is how dirty the windows were. But I got over it. So I start scraping the first window. I washed both sides of the glass twice. After priming the window I stopped and took a look at the base. Washed the glass inside and out and primed the exterior. After all this crouching down to paint I will not need to do squats for a little while. After the final coat of exterior paint I’m in love with this one little window! Now only 4 more to go! lol
