more on my "slow and steady" campaign



as some of you know, most of this cosmetic renovation is being done by b-mo (kidding...by us'ns).  as many of you also know and feel,  life tends to creep up on you and before you know it your projects are piling up and being trumped by unexpected "other projects" and for us, guests.  i guess i need to throw in some travel and then it is 2013 already.

no more excuses...the show must go on.  so, right now i am tackling painting the exterior... one wall at a time.  i started with the front of the house (which is small) and am slowly moving around.  my second round was really the smallest wall on the house, but i needed a bit more prep and i was working alone (more excuses). 

here is my before (7 different colors on that patched up wall before i cleaned er up) and after. 

slow he goes....
