|Here I am relaxing on my decrepit bench|
That's when the waiting started. Nothing happened. Nothing got painted. I ended up relaxing on a paint-chipped sorry excuse for a bench FOR SIX MONTHS. SIX MONTHS, MIND YOU!
So today, there was movement in the right direction. We got in the car and pulled into the HOME DEPOT parking lot!
|Here's Home Depot in Portland, just across the bridge.|
We go over there to save on sales tax.
Notice how sunny it is. A great day for bench painting, I thought!
Luckily for me there was a staffmember named David who helped us out. He spoke Spanish, too. I read that on his apron. Gracias Amigo!
So David said to pick out any color we wanted and he would mix that color in a quart of paint for MY BENCH. He recommended semi-gloss.
|Here I am checking out a paint color. It was teal. Close enough to turquoise for me.|
I handed the paint sample to David.
We took our paint and I trotted out the door. I LIKE HOME DEPOT!
Soon we were home. My owner got everything ready and then I decided to take a nap and stay out of her way. When I woke up I saw the first coat ON MY BEAUTIFUL BENCH (Banco in Spanish). More work has to be done but I know I'll love relaxing on it.
|Don't say it's too bright. It will get darker when it dries.|
And, besides, I LOVE IT!
ME GUSTA MUCHO MI BANCO NUEVO!
Love, Cinnamon (the happy dog)
