Do you want to know how to use a paint sprayer to paint a ceiling? I’m showing you how along with other valuable building tips!
You know how I have mentioned about a thousand times that my dreams are coming true with this garden house? This is so true, but I have a little confession to make.
It’s a little embarrassing, but since we’re friends, you and me, I feel like I can tell you everything.
The garden house build has started to filter into my dreams. Like, my real-I’m asleep-dreams. But wait, the story gets even better.
As we all know, some dreams are so far-fetched and just out there weird, and other ones are kinda-halfway-real. I don’t even know how to categorize these two. I guess a combo of both.
This Garden House Is Filtering In My Dreams
I’ve had two whacked out dreams this past week, and they’re out-there odd. Get this:
In one dream, I was dreaming that we kept cutting some 2×4’s incorrectly and I was stressing out. I was worrying about having to throw away all of this wood that was cut incorrectly, and I was stressing about money going down the drain. Then, Sean woke me up because I was singing, OUT LOUD, in my sleep…..
“Wake me up, before you go go….”
I don’t even want to try and diagnose this dream, but how weird is that? First of all, I can’t sing a note. Secondly, I’m singing to 2×4’s to wake me up before they go go.
I Can’t Even.
Then, the next night I had a dream that Sean told me I needed to run and get more paint. So I got into a boat and drove the boat to Home Depot to get the paint.
We don’t even own a boat.
It’s builds like this garden house that really monopolize the mind. Crazy stuff, right?! Still, oddly enough, I’m happy to dream weird, because the end result will be perfection.
Let’s Watch Episode 8 Of Brooke’s Garden House!
Ya’ll this week was busy, and the two of us were on our own. Fine by us because RTB gave us another project list to do while he’s offsite. We got all of the windows completely framed in, the north side of the garden house dried in, and, AND, the garden house is painted, which was no small feat.
Spraying the inside ceiling was a chore. The paint sprayer that we have broke down after about 15 minutes of use. We couldn’t get it back up and going, and I may or may not have spewed a few cuss words in the interim. (My Mama would be so ashamed at my total lack of refinement.) Luckily, we have a less heavy duty sprayer on stand by, that Sean could substitute for the big one. He took over and finished the inside ceiling, and thank the high heavens that the little sprayer worked. Otherwise, we would be stooged.
All of the windows are framed in. Sean rocked that out this week as well. We decided to install the old siding on the front and the back of the garden house, and for the sides, simple wood board trim would be our answer.
I’ve gotten a few questions why I’ve painted the garden house a dark green. My answer – because I want it to blend with nature. I don’t want a white garden house, because I don’t want it to stick out. The dark green blends so well with its surroundings, even with the leaves off the trees. When I’m inside the garden house, looking out of the windows, it’s like there’s no sight interruption looking out. No stark white to stop the eye.
I’m diggin’ it.
We have another busy week coming up. I’m personally laying the floor this week that I will also film the how-to on that as well. All brick in a herringbone pattern. I’ll be all about the floor while RTB finishes siding the back of the garden house, and moving out the columns on the front.
We’re in the home stretch, and hopefully, my dreams won’t get any more bizarre than last week. I’m not sure Sean can tolerate any more middle-of-the-night-Wham-tunes.
