A gallon of paint later and we are still painting, but the end is near (and so is our warm weather). Last weekend we had warm weather and lots of sunshine, perfect for painting! It is amazing what a few coats of paint can do for some tired wood. Check out the before and after:
Fall weather officially made its appearance last week and through the weekend. Much cooler temperatures make for longer dry times between coats, but a more enjoyable environment for working. Each swing set piece was power washed, allowed to dry, and given two coats of paints. I put three coats on the ends of the wood that would be touching the grass. We are 90% done with painting and have just the rock wall left. Our backyard looks like an obstacle course.
The hubby and Little J dug out the grass where the sandbox will be, which is built-in under the clubhouse. Little J has such a heart to help, he really loves participating and working with his papa. After digging out the grass we were able to start re-assembling, oh happy day!
Fingers crossed my next update will be of our finished play set!
