I spent the afternoon Saturday starting the bigger-than-I-had-hoped project of staining my new picket fence.
The sewing queen joined me, and worked tirelessly doing the detail work.
By 5:00 we had a vision of what the finished project will look like.
It then proceeded to rain buckets all day Sunday, and the forecast for the week is continued rain. (Which we need desperately, so I am not complaining.)
Looking at our work so far also sealed the deal in my mind that the bricks will absolutely be painted the soft gray house color, once the picket fence staining project is complete.
Apparently there will be lots more weekends spent with a roller and paintbrush in my hand.
