Looks pretty odd right now, doesn’t it?
This is only the first 2 coats of blue paint. It’s going to get at least 3 more. Working outside, in cool temperatures, the paint has to be thinned a fair bit. Otherwise it’d never dry. I hope 5 coats will be enough to cover.
The doors, indicated with red and white paint will be painted a hunter green. The patriotic red white and blue motif is temporary.
There’s a chance of snow predicted for the next 4 - 5 days. I’m hoping to paint during the warmth of the day in time for it to harden up before the snow flies late at night.
Painting under these conditions sucks, but you do what you gotta do. Worse comes to worse I can always redo it later.
