Recently I took on the task of painting the coop.  It has been un painted for three years and I figured now that I am getting my strength back and feeling better, there was no time like the present to tackle this job.  As you  can see, I paint more than the object....I also paint myself and my entire outfit too.  I am not a neat painter by any stretch of the imagination.

I must admit, I was a little hesitant to climb the ladder and paint the very peak of the building, but I conquered my fear and as you can see, the coop has a new coat of red paint with white trim. 

My hands look like I just committed a hideous murder.  Good thing the paint was easy to remove from skin.

And I couldn't forget to dribble some color onto my boots.....hey, what is a good pair of muck boots without a layer of chicken poop and barn red paint?

I can't believe how great that red looks on the coop...what a huge improvement!
I guess your boots lived up to their name!

Wow the coop is looking good! I really like it and I am glad you are feeling better and getting some of your strength back, shame about the mess, I hope paint comes off the boots easily, still they are muck boots so I guess it doesn’t matter to much. Nice to see a post from you again, take care.

Oh my goodness, you seriously made me laugh out loud! I am glad I didn't snort coffee through my nose. :)
