Painters for Hire

For Father’s Day we decided to paint our front steps for the hubby. No big fancy shmancy gifts in this house.  We have lived here for 8 years and the steps have never had any TLC.  It is not looking good for them. And to be perfectly honest I would like to redo the entire front porch.  Right now, that is not high on the priority list though. However, it is time for a  few Miner adjustments.


So I got to work interviewing potential painters.  I didn't really care about experience.  I was more interested in cheap, cheap labor!

As luck would have it, I found 2 rather small painters that brought their $.79 paint brushes and got right to work.  I, of course, helped also to keep costs down even further.

How much did this excellent painting crew cost me, you ask?

A hug each and time on the slip n’ slide after work.
That is a price I was born to love!

If there are any drips…don’t look at me!  It was the little painters. That is my story and I am sticking to it.

P.S.  I need to get the painting crew back to do a second coat.  Maybe in another 8 years.

Work in progress

Happy Painting!

    1. Well, for about 5 minutes actually. My littlest stuck it out longer. It was so hot that day! Straight to the water for them.
