I imagine this is pretty close to what it would look like:
This is the finished product of the painting the railings and stairs project. It’s not quite what I was aiming for. I was hoping for something a bit darker… Chris’ reaction when he walked in from Port yesterday night was (as I grabbed his sleeve so he wouldn’t sit on the wet stairs), “Oh. Did you seriously paint it blue?” Yes. Thanks for the vote of confidence.
Usually I get excited about projects. This one is going to take some time to grow on us I think. Seriously, does it look like baby blue? I was going for a light Caribbean. Ugh. I think I need to stop obsessing and just deal with it.
The good news is that with our new light Caribbean stairs and railings there’s one more project I can check off my list. I am slowly regaining my sanity. After I cleaned up my paint stuff I managed to get the house a bit tidier so it feels less “projecty”. Tomorrow Chris is going totally destroy that and tackle the kitchen wall with the goal of getting it all done so Luxon can come in and do the cement work to make it a nice doorway, not a ragged one, and block up the old one on Saturday.
In mission news Chris and the guys delivered 30 filters to another community in the Artibonite on Tuesday and 30 to Port for a jail project yesterday. Like I said, we’re keeping busy :o)
I think this sweaty girl needs a shower.
