This morning Jason woke up grumpy, as you do when your reveille is interrupted at 5.30am by small but pesky children.
The way he manages his rage is to do some jobs around the house, like undercoating a couple of weatherboards on the deck. Again, as you do.
|These new boards were added when we had the bi-fold kitchen windows installed last year. |
We never got around to painting them.
But one can't stop at just a couple of boards. One must paint the entire wall.
|One section of the deck undercoated. The final coat will be white.|
And then one must go to Bunnings and buy a sample pot of a contrasting paint trim for the external sills, door thresholds, guttering and fascias boards.
|The trim is a dark muddy brown, almost black in some light.|
|The brown trim is called Peppercorn Rent which is a strange thing to call poo brown. This is just a low sheen sample. The final coat will be glossier.|
Looks like we are embarking on our exterior house painting journey. One wall at a time. I wonder how long this will take?
Anyway, what do you think of the trim colour? Too brown? Or should we just do the trendier dark grey or steely blue? Speak now or forever hold your tongue.
