Well, we finally finished painting the exterior of our house and faux-wood graining the garage door
Time was of the essence.
Fortunately, the weather cooperated long enough to let me paint without too much heat (it was going to change for the hotter according to the weatherman and it did for a day or two), however, I did deal with quite a bit of wind.
Definitely challenging to get the glaze/paint-on before it dried. The strokes were long and tiresome trying to keep it on track, but I did it in 2 days basically.
I primed and based coated one day took about an hour or 2 for each and then fauxed the next that was 6 to 8 hours.
The house color is quite a change for us ( and I suspect for a couple of our neighbors too = ) ) it was funny hearing all the (well-intentioned) “unasked for” opinions about how we should do the garage door.
Either they’re not happy that I chose my own way or blown away by the look and feel silly, I’d like to think the latter. = )
We’ve had many many compliments as well and notes left on our car expressing their love for our colors!!! I’ve also had a couple of offers to do garages. I’m on the fence about that.It’s not too terribly difficult, it’s just that I can live with my imperfections not sure if someone else can.
