Our latest project

I know it has been a while since I have posted but we have been super busy and this takes a spot on the back burner. We actually have several projects in the works as I am sure that doesn't surprise anyone. This project started with a $15.00 find at Menards. We found a 5 gallon bucket of white outdoor paint on the oops shelf for $15.00. Yep $15.00! So of course we snatched it up and began scrapping all the old paint off.
First Zoe and Everette wanted to earn a toy (ok so they just wanted a toy but we said earn). They were suppose to scrap an hour a day for three days. Well they actually spent a few minutes scraping here and there with more water and bathroom breaks but hey they are 9 and that beloved toy wasn't yet bought and right in front of them like that golden carrot at the end of a string.
Will put on a new (well old but new for the garage) door that will actually close now. We finally got the whole garage scrapped and it was a job. Last night we started the painting process and it is looking better already. Of course it would have been torture to keep the boys out of that white paint so we let them help.

Next will be a new roof and garage door and it will be much better. I am thinking about doing a trim color or door color for a pop of color so let me know what you think.
As I stood back last night I noticed people must think we love white. We have 2 white cars, a white house and now a white garage. Actually it all happened that way by chance.

Very cool! I remember walking by the garage but never actually entered it. Is all the painting exterior? And how many weeks do you think it will take for McKay's palms to turn to a normal shade of flesh color?
