Well, I did it. I painted Red Oak House, including two doors and some trim. It is the first (and I’ll bet last) house I’ve painted.
It is a very big house, with two extremely tall sides. We should have rented scaffolding, but Jim held the tall ladder when I reached to the very tops and there were no major falls.
All along I listened to the wise counsel of my good friend, Linda Suchy, who told me “move the ladder, don’t reach too far.”
I have a great sense of accomplishment and my body is tired. We are thrilled with the results.
I’m ready to enjoy the rest of the summer now and watch my daylilies bloom!
