Victorian House Progress and Empanadas
Georgia Girl requested progress pictures of the pink Victorian house. I decided to try a new spray paint that I saw in Home Depot a few months ago. It states that is 2X the coverage. What really caught my eye was the $3.87 price tag. Double the coverage and half the price? Worth a try.
They have a ton of colors. I decided to try the sage green. Caution. I am spray paint challenged. LOL! I am just too impatient to do a light spray and wait, etc. So most of my spray paint projects will have major paint drips on them. I will start by saying, I love this paint! Definitely worth buying some more. It has incredible coverage and works for even the impatient painter, such as myself.
So this is the progress so far. I plan to paint the roof black and the windows will be another color, possibly cream, but I'm still deciding. I want to do something nice to the porch, too. This took me all of 7 mins to accomplish. I told you I was impatient. I am happy with the results so far, and I will continue on this journey. I'm sure if I ever want to restore it back to it's original pink color, I can do so with a little paint remover.
Just in case you forgot what the pink looked like.
I have to replenish the Etsy store, so I will be making new items several times a week. I started today with an order of empanadas. An empanada is a stuffed bread or pastry baked or fried in many countries in South Europe, Latin America and parts of Southeast Asia. The name comes from the Galician, Portuguese and Spanish verb empanar, meaning to wrap or coat in bread.
"Oh good. Food." (Grace)
"Would you like to try one?" (Grace)
"In a minute. Let me look at you." (Kevin)
"There's something different about you. What is it?" (Kevin)
"Oh, I stopped by the Mane Event and India gave me some highlights." (Grace)
"I don't know what highlights are, but I think I like them." (Kevin)
Kevin and Grace take a seat. Kevin can't take his eyes off of Grace. He can't get over how a change in hairstyle can make his girl so sexy.
Empanadas will be hitting the Etsy store sometime today. Every thing is loose on the plate to provide maximum play.
