When Do I Sit Down?

Modern mom just trying to make it!

Penny Pinching Patio Project – First day of hands on workings!! April 2, 2013

Last Friday was a wonderful day! It was 62 outside and sunny.  Hard to think that we had 6 in of snow on the ground on Monday and my husband and daughter had a snow day.  We got a lot started today.

THE SHED!

I said something about how ugly the shed was and my husband got up and left the deck where we where sitting watching the kids play. When he came back he had some white spray paint and started painting the side of the shed.  He used one can and it made a HUGE difference. He just did the rusty part and it looks sooooo much better!

004He only did the top left corner but it looks so good.  We are only going to do the side you can see from out house and the road and see how far we get with the spray paint we have. So far this project is Free but we will see what it costs in the end.

THE TRAMP!

So we moved the tramp so you can’t see it from the road. It is now just about the only think I can see when I look out my back door but that is ok. (I think this means that the kids have won and are now going to take over EVERYTHING).

The best part about this is the kids can get in from the deck. My 4 year old does not need help and I don’t have to be outside to see them. I can see them from the family room and the kitchen so if I need to get something done they can still play! Another wonderful thing about this is if the yard is muddy they can get to the tramp and stay clean!

 

The kids and I also swept all the leaves off of our patio so it is ready to be worked on! I can feel the excitement! Now to get the pallets from my step dad.
