Sorry Austin, another painting got in the way of finishing your’s. It’s been on the back burner for a long time…like an albatross hanging around my neck. So, I spent my Labor Day, laboring over this painting project…wait for it….my front porch swing. Yep, it’s been waiting patiently in my garage for…well… 6 years. I thought I would go in and knock this one out in an hour or so. What a laugh! Five hours later, noticing that the special paint with the built in sealer was not magically concealing the green bleed-through of the treated wood, I threw in the towel… or should I say paint brush… for the day. Not sure when I will be brave enough to get back to this project.
