Then Dave started on the side fence:And we get painting again LOL
We've become very good at making sure everything is ready to go... which involves making sure we get two coats of Charcoal on the capping while the Liquid Amber is drying! The capping is really making the fence stay straight as well :)
As soon as Krystal got home from school on Thursday she got into her painting gear and away she went:
She made the comment that she 'kind of missed' her painting clothes and on Friday I found out what she meant! Mikayla had her first day at high school on Friday and I had my teacher only day... I got dressed in my 'clean clothes' and went off to work and all day I felt funny because I've become so used to looking like a 'ragamuffin'... it was almost a relief to get back home and put on my painting clothes again LOL
We actually got HEAPS done on Friday afternoon and worked right up until 9pm again with awesome results:
Yesterday we carried on with the painting and Dave got the batons up for the front fence where the driveway is:
Then there was more capping to go on:And more painting to do:We also made our first real mistake and it's a doozy!!! We thought that the fibro would look good painted black... and it so DOESN'T! So now I have 10 litres of black paint that I'm not really going to use... EXPENSIVE!!! Yes Mum, I know I should have tried a test pot!!! We still haven't decided what we're going to do with the fibro but I'm sure we'll come up with something:We've been getting through the paint too... it's quite funny looking for which buckets are full and empty so we'll have to have a bit of a tidy up soon!We're having a bit of a quiet day today... just chilling out together because tomorrow the girls and I are back to school. I'm so pleased that it's daylight savings because it means that we can still make good progress each day... especially now that we're getting towards the end of the project :)
On a final note... Bon Voyage to Mum!!! Mum and Richard are heading off today on their much awaited cruise. She's going to miss the birth of her new grandbaby while she's away too! (Trac and Hau are expecting their third baby any day now!) Anyway they're going all around NZ and then over to Australia and she's been looking forward to it so much! I hope you have a great time and remember to text when you can!!
