Another project finished

Here is what our shed looks like after all the trim was added.  DH got done and said why didn't I do this 20 years ago when I built it?! I told him he was so busy working back then I'm surprised he even found time to build it in the first place.  It doesn't look like much of a job to just add the trim, but it was pretty much an all day job. The cedar boards were given to us free (yay!) by a neighbor back a year ago when we painted our house and had to replace some of the trim that had rotted.  The boards are all different sizes and width's so it took some work to match pieces and then get them all cut to fit and tack them up to make sure.  Then took them all back down and DS and DD painted them all.  We had the paint left over from painting the house.  And then they had to nail it all back up. DS filled in areas with caulking and today he is going to paint over the nails to finish it up.  I like the barn style look that the trim added to it and I like that the open doorway was encased with trim, instead of just on the outside. Best of all - this project only cost us a few tubes of caulking!


  1. WOW! Looks GREAT!! Hope this is the start of his motivation!! ;-) Maybe being up, moving around will help him feel better. Chronic pain is a vicious circle - and being distracted from it can really help.

    1. Yes, DH has always realized having a distraction to focus on is a big help with the pain. I just have to keep reminding him that his distractions don't always have to be doing something physical. He needs to also find things that mentally challenge him - while he's sitting in a chair, not over-doing it!

  2. Great job!! All these projects always take longer than you plan.
