My latest project started this weekend. Chris and I were sitting on the front porch, enjoying quiet time together, when I noticed how dirty the light was. I talked Chris into taking it down so we could clean it up a little. I worked on it a while and mentioned painting it. I don't know how a bird had any room to perch up there and leave so much poo. Sorry, as PW says "Just keeping it real".
Chris said we should just stop and put it back up. He said "We can just buy a new one, that it would be alot easier." I almost passed out hearing him say this. Since he transformed into his new Dave persona, you never here let's buy a new one. The real shocker is I was determined to make this light look like new. I knew it would look better I just wasn't sure how much better. It was disguisting how dirty it was. I couldn't believe it once I got it down and started cleaning it. It is a wonder the porch was lit at all when it was on. The glass was so filthy, you couldn't see through it. After I got it all taken apart I convinced Chris to do the spray painting. I always seem to end up with runs. It makes me too nervous. I didn't want to screw it up at this point, besides I am saving money! Yeah for me. Aren't you all so proud of my new frugal attitude? I think that it turned out as good as new!
