When I got home about 12:30 today the sun was out for the first time in 1 1/2 weeks. So I thought I better take advantage of no rain while it lasted.
I forgot that I hate to tape things off, and I bought two colors of paint for my benches. I had the grand plan of spraying the metal black, and painting the wood parts with a different color. By the time I got around to the back with the tape, I decided I could just paint over any black that got onto the wood. By now I was too HOT to care all that much about a little over-spray. Ok, good, so no more taping! I mean, it's the back, right? (I should have just spray painted the whole stupid bench the same color!) Because I read your blogs, I had in my mind a story I recently read (can't remember where now) about one of you that used this Rustoleum outdoor metal spray paint - and how sticky it was on your bare feet. And how long you had to scrub to get it off.
Well, the black is done. By the time I was done, I was so HOT I thought I might just expire right there. I mean, it IS 75 degrees outside today! AND I have a migraine! I have now taken a very long, VERY cool shower, and I have the air conditioning turned down to 65, and my ceiling fan on high. And a cold Vanilla Coke Zero. I am recovering from the heat stroke I had. And I have taken ibuprofen.
If you are really lucky, I might go back out there and paint the wood part of that bench with the nutmeg color I bought in time for the "After Party" on May 14.
But there is no stinkin' way that I am going to paint that second bench! It's just gonna have to rot where it is.
