I tried to get started on the trim the other day, after work, but we need to get a few more things before I can finish that up, and we still have a few areas of dry rot that need to be repaired. While at ecohaus, Papa Seed also picked up a shade of red for the door. Originally, I wanted this just for the door on the inside, but it is going on the outside and the inside. Papa Seed said the Paint Mistress at ecohaus is his new BFF. They have all our previous purchases and colors on file, so she wanted to help him pick a matching color. He explained that I like the BRIGHT because I'm colorblind and crazy. She took that into consideration even when he said I wanted a red door. I love the color.
The photos show only the first coat. We aren't doing the washy looking thing. It is going to be a good coat of red, then I'm still planning on going back in and adding a little artwork in the little squares and rectangles. The blue is just the painter's tape that is going to be peeled off.
The rain, or at least the sprinkles, are supposed to come back this weekend. Good for my mood, since I get cranky if I have to deal with the bright sun too many days in a row, but not so good for getting the painting job done. It does, however, give us an excuse to move inside and get busy on the bathroom.
