Primer Day

I’m hoping to get at least 3 pairs of shutters primed today.

3 pairs of shutters have been cleaned and are ready for paint.

If the weather is perfect I may also be able to get some color on them, too.

Indoor/Outdoor primer.

I’ll use Zinsser primer thinned down to be used in the paint sprayer.

I took my 10-year-old can of paint to match the color.

The final paint color is a store match to my old color “Storm Gray”.

I’ll start with front-of-house shutters.

Can’t wait to show you some shutters hanging on the house.

What have you been putting off?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for good progress for you! I’m back out to keep clearing weeds (wild violets) from the paver paths in the main garden and then using the pavers upright on their sides to edge the paths. I’m putting down pine bark nuggets for the walking surface. Hopefully this will work better in the future than the paver stepping stones look has worked.

    1. Have been following your travels and I, too, would put off the mundane in place of adventure. Following Douglas as well. He’s a full “Iron Man” in my book. Jo
