It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to have to paint it.
Stephen Wright

One of the joys of having a wedding reception at a home, my mother's home in this case, is that little maintenance issues have to be taken care of by you (us, really). So we had a fun Saturday painting lattuce, trim and fencing! It is amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do, everything looked great!

Handy-dandy paint supplies

Francis had to be locked up... black lab + paint = big ol' mess!

Bye-bye manicure...

Rocking a very stylish painting outfit

And mom too except she looks more prepared with the hat

By the time we were done Francis was sound asleep on her back, all tuckered out too!

Good for you! I hate painting and will do most anything to avoid it. But, after it's finished, it's always so worth it. Enjoy! And kudos to Francis for being so good.

You are right that a wedding forces you to make all sorts of improvements! Sorry about your mani, but I am sure that the fresh paint looked great!

Have a wonderful day!

Oh...I remember doing all that for our open house in California. We had our main reception here and then after our honeymoon had a smaller one at my parents home. It was nice to get so much done on their home, but it was a lot of work!!

Hope you can at least have fun doing it!
