Painting, Day One

Wednesday I tackled our first paining project!  Adam helped me get the tape line level last night, but then I did the rest.  Even behind the corn stove.  (But don’t tell Adam that I had to kneel on it!)

The next step is to paint the bottom half “Bay Oyster.”  Step three (maybe in January) will be adding 1x3 boards vertically on the bottom half to look like this:

Now for the life of me, I can’t figure out where I found this picture and therefore who to give credit to.  But this was my inspiration.  We’re not going to bring the boards quite so high.  And obviously we’re putting a separate color on top. 

When I tell people what we’re doing, I get some funny looks.  You know the look when people are trying to be nice, but are really thinking, “That sounds awful!”  Lol!  I don’t blame them.  But I love that picture.  I want that look.  I’ve gotta try it.
