Finished Gates

One of the projects over the weekend was to choose a color and paint the gates on the front porch.

These are the gates that handy hubby built this summer to keep my sneaky dogs from sleeping on my porch furniture at night.  It worked and the porch has stayed cleaner than ever before.

As one might have guessed, I chose red for the color.  The house has a lot of brown and the door is red so why not?

I was ready to paint them myself and handy said he'd find the paint and leave it out there with some brushes and dropcloths.  And then I went off to decorate a little bit down around by the mailbox and when I came back, of course, he was half done with them.  (because that's what he does)  

So I sat on the glider and watched him finish. 
(because...sigh...that's what I do.)
my view while I was sitting on the glider...
All finished! 
Looks great!

They look great!!
The neighborhood kitties would be so upset with me if I tried to stop them from sleeping on my porch furniture. But I don't think I could stop them if I tried.

An excellent choice of colors!


A lover of scarlet just may,
When given the floor, have her say
About the bright shade
That lights up the glade
Like fire on a hot summer’s day!
