I'm pooped!!!

First coat of primer...I like just one coat with the wood
bleeding through ever so slightly...
hmmmm...
Yup, the door is white, it wasn't the original finish,
so I had no guilt painting it,
as a matter of fact, I painted it the
green and gray, white suits my vision better.

LOVE the inside...
My brother came down yesterday with his sprayer
and we got the inside almost totally finished,
'cept for a few beams that have to be painted and just
touched up here and there.

The floor is battleship gray, a good dirt hider,
though dirt doesn't hide at the Chateau...
it's called
ANTIQUITY!!!
I actually love the look of little cobwebs
in the corners of a window attached to an
old flower pot or book...
it tells me of a little life that just passed by...

See what I mean about the bleed...do I dare leave it
or paint on that second coat...
but doesn't it look cool with the old doors
n winders...?!
OLD...

What a charming little place. I am personally getting sick of wielding a paintbrush...seems to be one of those never ending tasks. Like I've been chinking the inside of our cabin for the past 4 years...Now I just do it when the spirit moves me. Hasn't moved me lately. ha!
Have a good week ahead! x-Cassie

Beams? I just love it. Did I miss what you will be using it for? Workshop? I would have to work hard at not using it for storage. It is just perfect.

I say as long as it doesn't look streaky from brush strokes or roller marks BLEED ON! #6 on my bucket list: VISIT MUSCATINE IOWA! I'll be there one day. Keep a light on, please.

Though it may look interesting, it's probably better to give it that second coat to protect the wood. ATB!
