En anden slags projekt / A different kind of project
Som I kan se, var den sorte farve helt væk alle de steder som var udsat for sol og vind.
Stor var min overraskelse, da naboerne fortalte at de ikke kunne huske den nogensinde var blevet malet i de 20 år de havde boet der, så det var måske ikke så underligt at den trængte!
My house, you know? I LOVE it! It's so pretty and cozy and mine, and I love being here. I have this nice carport, that I mostly use for drying clothes and for my bike, but it really looked like it seriously needed some paint. Wood tend to do that, you now - even the impregnated kind!
As you can see, the black color was completely gone all the places exposed to sun and wind.
I was very surprised, when the neighbors told me that they couldn't remember it ever got painted during the 20 years they lived there, so I guess it wasn't so strange it needed paint!
I talked to my brother, who had his house for 25 years, to hear how to do it, and to the guy in the paint-shop who reminded me about painting on the inside of the open fence. So I sprayed with the cleaning stuff and brushed it off after a few days. Really a challenge! Quite a few places looked like this, and brushing inside a fence is not so very easy......
(Og måske finde nogle havehandsker til næste gang!)
My hands look like this, and I'm sore in all kind of strange places. But today, I want to be done! The inside of the shed will not be painted, and the entrance bit neither. It will have to be some other time. But the rest I want to get done, and THEN I need to lie a bit more in my hammock before the vacation is totally over......
(And maybe find some garden gloves before next time!)
