And now the computer is giving me error messages and doing very weird things! Let's see if it will allow me to put a photo on the blog: Yay!
The shabby chic shop has been disassembled, with bits cut off, and is now being painted prior to re-assembling. I just hope that I have enough pale grey paint to finish this project, as I can't purchase my favourite paint brand, Ceramcoat, here in my part of Canada any more. You can just see through the window in my work area here; can you tell we had more than 25 cm (10-12" of snow overnight? And our temperatures are below zero Celsius, in the double digits.
And then there is the gatehouse assembly project:
So the gatehouse is being glued up, upstairs on the kitchen counter. It turned out that we couldn't make actual moving gates, so instead we have a single fixed gate; you will just have to develop a willful suspension of disbelief. The dark brown lintel down below is what will hold everything in place once the gate is permanently positioned. For now, I need to be able to move the gatehouse out of the way while I work on the gardening plan.
Back to work; I have to do the second coat of whitewash on the shop project, let that dry overnight, and then sand things down to look shabby chic. Then I can let my mind wander with television for a couple of hours, before it is time for bed.
