|House of Many Colors|
What is wrong with the house in this picture?
Definitely two different colors of green, which I did not detect until the paint dried!
Apparently the paint gods were out to punish me for neglecting to paint by the rules. BUT, in my defense. All the paint was formulated and purchased at one time from a paint store.
First, I never thought to do a color sample of each gallon before applying the paint to the house. I just assumed all the paint would be the same (I know, I know, at this stage in my life, I should know better then to assume).
Second, always paint a couple of boards all the way across, then move on to the next set. Well…..here I have to admit when I reached the area above the window(s), I was pretty tired of climbing up and down the ladder. AND, up near the top, I was feeling a bit unsteady. So…..when I was up there, I painted all the surface area I could reach with out dismounting the ladder. Of course, this is where I ran out of paint, and I had to open a new can .
Moral of this story, paint by the rules.
