Anyways, I get to bore you with another house update.
So he went to Home Depot to ask the Paint Dude (I think that's his official job description that he will forever put on his resume - "I was Paint Dude at Home Depot...") about the possibility of painting. The Paint Dude said that there was a special kind of paint that could hold up if it dipped to freezing the night after it was painted. But here's the clincher - you have to apply the paint in 50+ degrees, and it has to stay at 50+ degrees for at least four hours while it dries. If it doesn't, the paint will peel off when it freezes.
This was a dicey situation. But Saturday promised to be warm, so Ben and Dad got the paint and rented a paint spray gun thingey.
We had scraped the peeling paint the day before. My cute dad:
Here are some "after" pictures:
And, luckily, we got the four hours of 50+ degrees before it dipped down to freezing. And the paint has held up really well. Phew.
