I'm beginning to get irritated with the chicken coop. I just want it done already so we can work on the house.
I bought paint at Home Depot the other day. Porch Ceiling was the color and it should have been light blue. It was dark grey. The first can she mixed was pink. The second can was grey, but she assured me it would dry blue. Wrong.
This time I went to Lowe's and got Porch Blue. It is light blue, but it is pretty obvious the temporary lighting in the coop is awful. It really is blue. I think.
A little tidbit from my
too many hours of research on chicken coops, design, color, etc. is that in the south they paint porch ceilings light blue. The hornets and wasps think it is the sky and don't build nests there. I also learned that blue is a very calming color so those are the two things that fueled my decision to pick what I did. Can you imagine my giddiness when I read the label: Porch Ceiling. It was an omen. HD promptly rained on that parade, but Lowe's followed up with a similar name and saved my story.
Another side note: Yesterday when I picked up the roller to paint I had shooting pains in my hands. It was a struggle to finish the whole room. The radio went to weather when the lady says to expect snow flurries tonight and tomorrow. Duh! My hands could have told you that! This morning my fingers are stiff and painful, my feet hurt and my lower back. All I can say is I am so glad I don't have "bad" arthritis. I can't imagine the pain some must be feeling today.
It's going to be a long stiffly moving day. I have half the wood chores done, but my back was screaming for a break. Off to see if I can finish.
