First of all, let me tell you that my man loves me with all his heart and shows it on a daily basis – the feeling is quite mutual I assure you! Occasionally, though, I have to work hard to convince him that he can do what it is I need him to do and that it won’t be terribly overwhelming because I have confidence in him and his many abilities!
(And no, I am not sucking up – much!)
Enter this project…after much convincing (and maybe just a little pouting) this came home with us and we maneuvered her onto the patio out of the rain we knew was coming. Yes, there were repairs to be made but he did them speedily as I knew he could.
(He also told me a bit later that I was right and my vision saw the potential he had missed.) He repaired, replaced, sanded and scrubbed (I was at the shop) and then we began to paint on Saturday morning.
This is fabulous paint that magically appeared in my garage because I do not remember buying it – love the vintage green color! And it was fairly old but it went on beautifully and I adore the coverage.
Now for the shelves! We located some old tongue and groove he had rescued from the neighbor’s burn pile a few years ago, scrubbed, cut to fit and cleated for stability – and I said “Please don’t paint it!”
Getting it into the shop was tricky and one of the old-too-small wheels shattered so all four were replaced after a trip to the hardware store Again, not on his list of to-dos today but he always comes thru for me. New wheels make it actually so easy to maneuver!
And here she is in place and chock full of goodies!
