With the chillier temperatures, it’s really not a good time to be painting outdoors, so I made a point of starting right after doing my morning rounds. This way, it could have the whole day to cure, and I could decide on whether I wanted to do a second coat or not.
The top is cut so terribly crooked! LOL This is the piece I cut using a hand saw, after two failed attempts with the power tools we have available.
Though the house was painted the summer before we moved in, it looks like the inside of the door frame only got one coat, so I went ahead and painted that, too.
The extension cord to the cat shelter was staying, but I managed to keep it away from the paint. This corner on the left is where we’ve had to add the most material to make up for the shifting of the frame.
It’s really amazing how much a coat of paint makes even the worst patch jobs look better! 😀
Well, that didn’t take long! 😀
I had to leave the doors into the sun room open, of course, and later in the day we found white foot prints on the concrete inside! 😀
I’m rather happy with how the paint was feeling by the end of the day. We will be able to drop the cord down and actually close the door for the night. I’ve decided to go ahead and give it a second coat tomorrow morning, which means that the day after tomorrow, we can hang the door back up again.
It will be so good to finally have this job done!!!
After painting this morning, I headed to the post office to pick up our bulbs, which are now planted – but those will get their own posts! 🙂
