White paint

Finally, everything intended to be white on this farm is white ~
 the milking shed, the hitching post, the buck house, the chicken coop, the pig house {wait, it was white for only 30 minutes when they smeared it with mud, but let's not talk about that.  It upsets me.}  the mile of fence, and now the horse shelters.

Monday, I spent spraying 17 gallons of white paint on the horse shelters.  At least a gallon of that paint was on me.  This morning I had a little itch in my ear.  The next thing I knew my finger was covered with little specks of paint ~ lots of them.  Horrified, I remembered I went to the doctor yesterday and he looked in my ears! Oh, my.

On the bright side, the shelters are practically glowing in the sun this morning.  I like them so much better now.  We are ready for metal roofing on all the new animal houses.

But I'm not finished painting yet.  I have another project and it won't be white!

Just look at those...

country redwood
philipsburg blue
fairmont green
stuart gold
florida keys blue
pumpkin cream
and autumn purple

Oh, they tickle me pink.
Can't wait to show you when I'm done!

  2. Oh no, the roofing will match the burnished slate roof of our houses just like on the chicken coop. This is another project completely and all colors will be used.

  3. Everything looks stunning - it is almost blinding!
    LOL about the paint in your ears - I've had similar experiences - oh, how embarrassing!

  7. You've been BUSY!!! Ask me how much I hate paint'n fence. Your place looks great.. looking forward to whatever it is you're painting those great colors.

  8. Nothing like a good white wash and you must be very good at spraying by now. Can't wait to hear about your next project. Love the colors.

  9. I'm on the seat of my chair to see what you painted all those interesting colors! Hurry, get out and paint so we can see the results!

  10. The farm looks so inviting, the white fences and horse shelters look pristine.
    It reminds me of Churchiil Downs at the Kentucky Derby.
