Almost there, all I need in a second coat around the base and cleaning off the roof, plus fixing a couple cracks in the roof panels. Yay!

Here's some pictures just 'cause I'm happy about it )

Much more presentable - and functional - than before.

The Habitat for Humanity "re-store" had paint at half-off their already ridiculously cheap prices so I went to see if there might be a decent color for my old garden benches. I was thinking something mossy looking originally, so if they got scroungy out there it wouldn't show up but then - WOO! A huge 5 gallon bucket of the most amazing blue came by and I couldn't pass it up. Here's what I spent the last couple days on, I'm so jazzed with the result!

blue benches!

Color pop time!

About a year ago a friend and I stood looking at our battered and outdated Fellowship Hall at our church, which serves as everything from a cafeteria and craft area to a gym for the preschool. Decades of constant use really showed and we both utterly loathed the old valances of ruffled pink, country blue and teal that shrieked late 80s. That launched my efforts last Fall of a fundraising Tea, a gathering of donations and a lot of hours in group decisions on paint, etc.

Spent the last three days in there, yanking out the old curtains and the yards and yards of muslin underneath, filling holes, sanding and priming. Found stuff behind the cabinets from years ago and spackled countless staple holes... We're about a third of the way through this project but by Maundy Thursday this week we hope to have a new look to our old Hall at long last.

It's an awful lot of work and my feet and legs are killing me, but it's a great feeling to get it done!

Time to use one of my generally hidden Super Powers - painting the parking lot!

Seeing we had some nice cloud cover this morning, I dumped my plans to garage sale and started in on painting the church parking lot while it was relatively cool. I re-do it every 2-3 years, running the striper is the best part. This was the icky part, the crawling along hand-painting lettering, little handicap dudes and speed bumps...got about 1/3 done before the sun burned its way out of the clouds and I was fragged out, which is pretty good.

Wish the paint weren't so expensive, but hey...it gets the job done. Entombs bugs and weeds well too. I love how it brightens everything up, having it all shiny and white like that, it makes it look like Somebody Cares.
