Getting SPOILED by all this sunshine!!!

Eighteen days straight of dry sunny weather here!  Second longest dry spell this year!  Yeah . . . we get a little giddy from too much sunshine around here!  It’s been so nice to be able to work outside this late in the year.  I’m getting LOTS of sign boards ‘prepped’ (sanded, base coated, painted and distressed) ready to be stenciled on later when I am ‘stuck’ inside.  Getting a good number of other painting projects done too!

The color was a little ‘different’ too.  Almost a Periwinkle blue.  Removed the drawer pulls (set aside to use on another project later on)  Sander off the sheen and painted it my signature Aqua.
