On Friday afternoon, I stopped by Home Depot and picked out some paint - Red Brick - to paint the door and got up around 6:00 on Saturday morning to put the first coat on. I like to work either before the sun comes up or after it goes down, otherwise it is blazing hot in this Alabama summer.
I put the second coat on around 7:00 Saturday night and then finished with a third and final coat on Sunday morning at 6:00. During the total of four hours or so that I spent painting the door, I managed to amass almost 30 mosquito bites on my legs; but, the door looks great, so it was worth it. I love the red color and the shed, well, it looks like a little barn really and I love it.
One thing, however, that I did not love about it was the massive amount of spiders that had already accumulated inside. My Aunt Linda told me about a bug bomb and so after church on Sunday I went and bought one and set it off during the afternoon. After church Sunday night I swept out the shed and hopefully the spiders will not return.
I'm really excited about the new shed and I want to send out a big thanks to my dad and his friend Buddy who worked so hard on putting it together for me.
