I, personally, have never seen those better days, but I can only assume that our garage was once new and painted a shiny white. These days, it's almost gray and pretty gross. But we did install a new garage door about eight years ago, with lofty intentions of repainting the garage and cleaning it out. It's been a long eight years.
School ended a few days ago, and with nothing to do, this seemed like a perfect opportunity to put the children to work - especially because we already had some leftover bright-white-primer-and-paint-in-one! I don't know who first came up with the idea of combining primer and paint together, but they definitely deserve a hug.
And so the children painted.
And they were thrilled to do so. No, really. They loved it!
I loved sitting on a chair with my feet up, watching them.
Win-win for everyone.
