What a weekend. I'm exhausted, and it's only Monday!
There's one more area that needs to get painted before the pool paver guys arrival in ONE week (woo hoo!).
On a side note, as I was looking through these pictures picking one for this post, I couldn't help but laugh at Kodi. In everyone he's making some sort of funny expression. I don't even think I realized he was in the shot when I took it. Goofy dog...he's such a camera ham!
Chris and I thought this area would be pretty easy. A little bit of trim work, roll, and wala. Or not. We had to take off the satellite dish that hasn't been used in who knows how long, and since the previous owners painted most of the boxes and wiring (most of it's for the pool equipment), we had to too. Oiy.
Friday night we took down the satellite dish and Chris pressure washed. This side was diiir-ty. I had to let it dry all day Saturday, so it was Sunday before I could get started out here.
Sunday morning I got up and trimmed as much as my 5'7 self could (holy highness!). I decided while painting all of the equipment boxes and wiring that I wanted to do something different for those outside lights. We want to replace them eventually, but there's a loooong list of things to buy, and these don't quite rank at the top, so I wanted to add a little pop of color to the lighting in the meantime.
Heelllooo Krylon Spray Paint in Blue Ocean Breeze.
I just removed the jar, lightbulb, and sprayed a few light coats of the blue on the lighting.
And then painted around it with my Sandstone Cove while I was edging.
Oh, you want to see how it looks with the new paint job for the house?!
Well, me too...but Chris did school work ALL DAY Sunday, and I'm only 5'7, so I only could paint up to a certain height before having to call it quits. I'm pretty positive and confident that I can do anything. The problem is I'm also clumsy and accident prone, so me up on a ladder that's leaning against the house trying to finish getting this trim just wouldn't be smart. I got as much as I could with our 8 ft ladder.
Our neighbors are probably thinking 'what the hey?!?!' Eh, maybe we'll finish it up sometime this week. But till then...you can admire my pretty new blue light.
