Day 9 coat closer.....

It was hot as you know where today and I gave up a chance to take the boat to the lake and spend time with my favorite cousins (on one side of the family hehehe) to paint!!
The stupid sprayer gave us a fit ALL DAY LONG!
How to you like the towel that is covering the door glass?
It's a beach towel that I got at a hair show at Myrtle Beach many years ago!
How appropriate? I have been using it as a drop cloth for a good while now!
It's getting there!
Needs at least 2 more coats of paint.
Ever tried to paint rough cut hemlock? Don't!

I have a surprise addition for the area to the left of the door, coming soon!

We ran out of paint about the time we ran out of not really, I had no energy all day because of the heat!
I can't wait to get the other zillion coats on so we can uncover the windows.
The ceiling of the front porch is going to be painted Morning Fog Blue and I hope to find a teensy tiny ceiling fan for it!!

I think I like it!!

What a transformation~ I love it too!! Wow!! If I hadn't started building my little chicken coop before I saw these posts you would have accused me of copying you:)) Now send up some energy so I can get up the gumption to finish it and get a couple of coats of white paint on mine before the snow flies!

Wow! It's looking good! I sure hope it has air conditioning in it.
