News alert! Bill paints!

Scraping .... and scraping ....

.... end of day one....

... project finished!

My joke over the years is that my husband would prefer a root canal over picking up a paintbrush.

So this week, when we teamed up to paint the "guest house" at our Michigan cabin, I was more than a little surprised. And excited by the results of our day-and-a-half effort.

He's a good hubby. Though he really did a LOT more scraping of the old paint than painting the new paint. Which suited me just fine.

I'm not sure which picture is funnier: the look on Dad's face or the "Tough Old Bird" t-shirt! Where did you get that!?

hahaha. I really thought YOU found it at Goodwill?! If you didn't, then I can't remember where I got it. But pretty sure it was a 2nd-hand acquisition. Yep...dad hung in there!

Nice work both of you...the guest house looks good as new! I wish we could've been there to help...and enjoy it!

how about next year...? There's still the garage and a boathouse or two left to paint!

I LOVE painting! (only not perfectionistic...)

Exciting and I love that shirt!

we'll take any and all helpers: perfectionists or NOT! Gee, I'll have to wear my tough old bird shirt more often!
