DH has said this at least three times over the last week.:p
We've been doing an exterior "face lift" on the house since August, doing all the work ourselves. Windows (including 8' patio door) replaced, all new trim around all the windows outside painted, cut and hung, all the facia painted, new garage doors, new front door, rock work, fence stained, end of house painted, and shed built and painted. I'm *this* close to showing you some before and afters, we just need to finish up the trim around the front door.
Anyways, the end of the house (which had been obscured by bushes and was a completely different colour than the rest of the house) and all those miles of combface for around the windows we painted with rollers. Days. of. work. :cry:
When we went to stain the new section of fence last weekend, DH was going to rent a sprayer, but actually ended up buying one at Cdn Tire because renting it for two days would cost about half as much as buying one, and we have other jobs we could also use it for. Anyways, DH would freaking marry this sprayer if he could. :eek: He's like a kid with a new toy. No, a kid with a new toy STORE. He called the kids out to watch him spraying. What would have taken us days took us 40 minutes! All that lattice on the top? Can you imagine?
Then yesterday he painted the new 8x12 shed (hardy board exterior) in less than half an hour. :D
If you don't have a paint sprayer, I'm just going to say you're an idiot too. :D$225 at Cdn Tire is the best money we ever spent on renovations, and we are totally kicking ourselves for not thinking of it earlier! :mad:
