Okay, so. If you've been paying any attention at all, you know TWH & I are in the middle of a DIY frenzy. Right now, we're focusing on outside projects because we live in South Louisiana and there is a very limited amount of time you can work outside without feeling like you're gonna die. Or it's raining. We spent yesterday working on re-doing our flowerbeds. We got two bordered and have one to go. This is how I spent my day.
First: Took the Crackhaid Dawg to the groomers.
Then went to the home store to buy some stones for the last flowerbed.
Now, I had to search for awhile to find the right pattern. Because there are TWO different patterns and I only wanted the one. There were about a gajillion bricks to go through to get my paltry twelve. I got them though.
Then, I came home, unloaded the bricks, and decided to prime the railings we're going to put on the front porch. First, I had to go into our long, narrow storeroom.
Which holds most of THIS DIY hoard.
So I could get the painting supplies bin off the shelf & out of the storeroom.
Dig the primer out from behind all the stuff in front of it & off the bottom shelf.
And after 10-15 minutes of sweating & swearing, SUCCESS!!
Yep. The results of my hard work. I did all this, for this...
And after several hours, ( all mother fucking day), I had THESE.
These are just primered but this weekend TWH can use the power-sprayer to finish them off. Then we can get them on the house. Yay!! Of course, as I'm typing this, I realize I missed a couple of things but they're gonna be SUPER easy. These railings were tedious because I had to paint all four sides of the stiles and the top & bottom support pieces. The best part of all this is, when Christmas comes around & I'm putting lights, ribbon, & garland on the front of the house in my never-ending attempt to Griswold the place up, I can decorate the railings too!! Woo-hoo!!
And THAT is how I spent my Monday.
