Thread: Paintbrush, friend or enemy?

  1. #11
    Thank you. I have been super busy building a house for my chickens with Le boyfriend (who thank goodness tolerates my ramblings about scary tools while learning to use circular saw and nail gun) that I haven't been reading or writing at all. Not even mentioning drawing or painting. But when the chicken house (Le dude calls it bird palace) is ready, I'm gonna show pics and ask opinions about painting it inside and out!

    That sounds like fun!
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    I am, I promise! It has alot of safetymechanisms, which is good. I find the nail gun alot scarier. I need my both hands to push the handles of that circular saw, so at least my fingers are far from the blade. But I am far happier when my title returns back to "soft haired beer retriever" instead of anything constructing related!

    Ohhh not me, it is the pants of the house that is the construction whiz. I simply do what he advices me to do, but I do agree it does looks sturdy and nice. I love this guy and his endless patience and compassion he pours over me and my kids. I really found a gem. Plus my kids love him too. Wonder if he realises how much this all means to me
