Dear Blogging Sisters
Here is a short progress report,
with before and "almost" after photos of the front porch :
If you look close you will see blue painter's tape up by the ceiling
and you will see that along the top edge I still have painting to do.
I stopped because my ladder dipped on me,
I didn't fall, thank the Lord,
but my paint did.
Lucky enough none hit the house,
but most of the half full can went
all over me.
What a mess!!!
This is the before . . .
you can see that the stairs are actually on the side.
That is another place that I need to get painted.
Steve has a ladder that will shorten one set of legs to go up stairs,
but now he won't let me paint it unless he is there to steady the ladder.
I just realized that I have room for a rocking chair . . .
I didn't think that one would fit.
Great, that's one more thing that I can keep
and not put in my "Yard Sale".
These are my painted drop cloth slip covers.
I made them reversible with the blue stripe fabric that is on the other glider.
Notice the screen door, it is the same door.
I took it apart, sanded in down,
added new screen and some fancy trim.
Then I painted it white.
Yesterday Steve rototilled the garden for me :)
And look, we have baby grapes on our vines,
I am so excited!
Well, I'm off to the dentist for a new crown .
I guess every queen desires a crown,
but I would like to skip this coronation,
if it were only possible, LOL.
Have a great day,
keep smiling :)
Your blogging sister, Connie :)
