Let's take a minute a reflect on the before:
And savor the after!!
This is it! It took a lot longer and a lot more work than I ever thought. I wanted to be done about 4 hours into it but I pushed through and now look!!!
I haven't blogged a whole lot in the last few days simply because I've been working diligently on this huge building. It's taken the better part of 3 days and I did the work primarily on my own with my 5 little helpers.
I would really like to find a galvanized wash tub on a stand to put between the two main stalls as a planter. The pile of wood at the base of the street lamp will be leaving soon. I have dreams of a weather vane at some point and honestly the sides of the building could use another once over with the top coat.
It's one of those things that I just had to draw a line under at some point. My house needs cleaned, the kids bathed, and we need to do a worksheet or two for school. I'm sure this will be an ongoing project but I feel it is a huge success.
Several of our neighbors have stopped by to give their nod of approval. It's awesome what a difference some paint and super hard work can do.
