The youngest daughter grabbed the camera this morning and took a great picture of Charlotte's Web at the mini barn. I think she might have the eye for this picture taken stuff.
I escaped work early today so I could get everything ready for the mini barn paint job in the morning. After stopping by my buddy Dave's house to grab the airless sprayer I looked at the clock to see it was only 5:00.
Four hours till dark, I think I can get this sucker done in that time. So here we go. One and a half hours later I ran out of paint with the whole back of the barn still needing to be done. I thought for sure two gallons of paint would cover it, but I guess with it being the first time using a sprayer I got a little carried away.
I started off trying to control the over spray but as you can see from the tin roof, I finally gave up and let the paint fly. I am sure it will wash off in the next rain, I hope.
In the morning I need to run into town and pick up another couple of gallons of paint so I can finish the backside. It that a red barn or what? Don't worry, the white trim will deaden it some, I think.
I had to grab this shot.
This is what the women folk do while work is being done.
Kicking back Redneck style.
