As you well know we have done quite a bit of adding to and improving the home here. Between re-doing the front porch, adding a walkway to the road and of course the back deck we were quite busy until winter set in. Then we all went in to hibernation mode, except for the trip to Florida. Well, now that spring is hopefully peeking around the corner, we are preparing to kick back into busy! Remember the deck? Now it needs stained since the wood has been allowed to season. We can get started as soon as all the snow is gone. This is where hopefully I will get to step in. Have I ever done any Boston Painting? No, but growing up with a father who worked for his father in a painting business, I did get some experience. I was able to help on weekends and over the summer.
I started out just painting baseboards and cutting in windows and such, all the small jobs. Tedious work, but it not only taught patience, but now I can paint a whole room and do a pretty good job of it, if I do say so myself. I moved on to walls and ceilings and finally was able to do an entire room by myself. Over the years of being married I have painted many, many rooms. I really enjoyed designing the children's rooms over the years. Of course most of them are older now and prefer to have a room that does not have little characters and trees all over. The children laugh because sometimes I just want to change the look of a room and will get the urge to paint. They usually just step out of the way! I still like to paint when I can convince my husband that a room needs redone.
So, now that the deck will need staining I might just jump in and help. Hurry up spring so we can get started! There is alot of deck and it will keep us quite busy. I don't think anyone will mind me helping. Do you have ant spring projects in mind? Leave a comment and tell us your plans.
