Doesn't it seem like this project has been going on FOREVER? Yeah, I'm ready to be done. But it's been really tricky to get the right combination of free time, cooperative weather, and money for supplies. Whenever I finally do manage to get all three of these factors to line up, I take advantage of it.
As I much I wanted to believe I was ready to apply the actual paint after my previous session, in reality I knew I needed a more thorough coat of primer first. After a trip to my local hardware store for more supplies, I dove in.
Besides the rarity of the time/weather/money trifecta, the other thing that's been making this project take so long is that each phase is really several mini-phases, because I have to do one side, wait until it dries, flip it over, do another side, etc.
It's getting there! We spend a lot of time on the porch in the fall months, so (fingers crossed) there should still be plenty of good glider time ahead when this is finally finished.
Coming soon: paint (for real this time!)
