Today is Mothers Day, I hope everyone had a Great Day. We worked around the yard today. and I got permission to paint the roof of the Trailer.
Anything that may help keep it a bit cooler inside.
I bought this paint at my local Ace Hardware store last fall, but ran out of time to paint it on before the Minnesota winter arrived.
I kept it inside all winter.Today I opened the can, and it had separated a little on top. I have a paint mixer paddle that goes into a cordless drill, it works wonders to mix paint, one minute with this, is equal to about 10 minutes with a wooden paint mixer.
I took the trailer to the car wash yesterday and tried to rinse off the roof, but it didn't clean it near well enough to paint over.So today I had to brush off the top and wash the entire top with Windex.
After that it was time to start painting. We are in the middle of the seasonal drop of the Maple Tree seed whirly-gigs. I knew they would be falling on my fresh paint, but I wasn't concerned of them sticking. Between coats I simply blew them all off with the air compressor hose.
I applied the first coat and then waited about 3 hours and applied the second. I actually have enough left over for a third coat, maybe Tuesday evening.
Bought these chairs today @ Home Depot. They go with the fire pit I built last weekend, it all goes with my wife's 50th Birthday Party on May 18th
