Something Is Finished

Even if I get nothing else done before I go back to work on Tuesday, I can say that I finished something while I was off! I spent Friday afternoon putting the trim on the shed and switching out some short screws for galvanized deck screws.

The mother got it painted last weekend. Before that, it looked like this.

That was a few months ago, before she got to painting it.

This is yesterday with the whole thing painted and with upper and lower trim attached. It's not perfect, but at least it complements the house again. And, more importantly, it won't fall down! I can feel satisfied that something got done while I was off, even if it wasn't what I had in mind.

Really nice. Very attractive colors.

That looks great! I'd say it was a whole second house if it had a couple of windows.

Karen Anne -- Thanks! It's actually the same colors as the house (except the gray is an accent base instead of a pastel base thanks to a Home Depot screw-up, so it comes out a little darker.)

Vicki -- Thanks! It sure feels that way after all the time and effort that went into both the inside and outside of that thing. :-)
