I wanted to keep the blue color but to my dismay it was very dry and was flaking off so bad that we had to remove it, hoping it did not have any lead in it. We also had to remove all of the old screen from the door and the side air holes. After removing the paint completely I found a close match to the color…Kilz "Erie Canal".
I brushed a very light coat on, let it cure, and then took my "mouse" sander to distress it up a little. I finished it with a hand rubbed walnut paste wax by Howard.
Marina has found a nice soft spot to hide as she naps the afternoon away.
Yep I’m cat sitting at my house while Holly and Richard are in Arkansas for vacation with his parents at Greer’s Ferry Lake. Fun in the sun, boating, swimming, fishing…all those fun things you do went you rent a townhouse on the lake for a week.
