Ah – such a heavy post yesterday. But I am so grateful for all the encouragement I got from everyone, and not one of you called me a horrible louse for putting my dog to sleep (this was my biggest fear in publishing that post yesterday). Nor did anyone suggest that I was crazy for wanting to home school. I can take being called crazy for other things, like unplugging the fridge, because, you know, some things just are a bit out there. ;)
Lightening (and brightening) things back up today is my newly colorful chicken coop! — YES! We finally repainted the chicken coop. It’s been on the to-do list for a long while now, but the weather has been uncooperative. The forecast this past weekend was all sunshine, so I went for it. Of course, the day I painted it, it rained anyway, but thankfully exterior paint dries fast and I think it held up no problem.
Here is the “before”
And here is the “after”
I don’t think the chickens care, but I like the new look. I thought with the new nest boxes and the pullets getting ready to join the main flock, an update was in order. Plus now I can feel all fancy-schmancy if we get to participate in Denver’s chicken coop tour again this year.
I ended up with plenty of left over paint in both colors, so now I’m thinking of what else needs a fresh coat. Could get crazy around here!
