In the “10 Tasks in 10 Days” Challenge we had quite a few projects at Glade Cottage.
Some of the most pressing were exterior painting. We had already replaced the door but still needed to:
1. Scrape, prime and paint the white trim and
2. Paint the blue exterior accents the same color as the shutters on the main house.
While Charlie was scraping he noticed the putty on the windows in the front really needed to be replaced so that meant some extra scraping and painting.
He scraped the trim
and I came behind and primed and painted.
And the one grey shingle I also painted. I know the more observant of you have been wondering what’s the dealeo.
Finally I painted the blue panels on the front and side of the cottage Duron Thunder Grey with which we had painted the house shutters a few years ago.
I’m actually going to count our 2 original projects as 3 projects since we needed to reputty the windows: a job in itself.
And how ’bout a gratuitous shot of the side of the Cottage?
Have you ever started a project only to find a bigger one lurking under the surface? And don’t you just hate that?
Sidebar: Stay tuned for a tutorial on puttying windows. It’s not as easy as it looks but since we had 2 dozen panes to do we got better at it.
