Colorful Coop

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!

  1. Nothing like a bit of colour to lift the spirits / dark patch in the garden LOL

  2. I need to paint my coop still. Like yours, our weather has been very uncooperative though!
