Yesterday, Lisa put the top coat on most of the rest of the south end of the porch. We would put the small wood box up, but we need the space for a few more days while the next portion gets painted.
This afternoon, Lisa scraped off old flaking paint, blew paint chips and dust off using the weed blower, and applied the last of what sanding sealer we had to prep the north end.
After work today, we went over to Lowe's and bought more sanding sealer and other home-improvement supplies. It was worth getting things we've been meaning to get because they sent me a $10 off $50 purchase coupon.
