With the weather so unbelievably mild, I was able to finish off some chores.
Normally, the days don’t get above 9°C/48°F so exterior painting is almost impossible.
Not so today!
I was able to start and finish off the trim around the windows, put the first coat of paint on the new front door, do a second coat on the basement bricks and paint the trim around the stairs/front veranda.
A quick look at before/during/after….
Immediately after the renovation:
In keeping with the grey theme, the palette is varying shades on the colorbond ‘Windspray’ cladding:
- The trim around the windows is ‘Vivid White’;
- The door is ‘Luscious Red’;
- The trim around the stairs is ‘Surfmist’; and,
- The bricks are ‘Lights Out’.
These greys all have a blue-ish base.
Still to paint are the eaves (white), the gutter (dark grey) and the stair treads (charcoal grey) but that will have to wait until another warm spell.
All in all, a productive day 🙂
