It always amazes me what a difference paint makes...how did you do it so cheaply?

I bought 5 gallons of mis-tinted paint from the local retailer for $25, and another $15 in sandpaper and paint sleeves

Don't you love it when you can find mistints in colors you can use? If I see one that there's even a remote possibility that I can use "somewhere" at sometime, I buy it.

If I have a specific color in mind, I haunt the mistint section in every town I happen to be in, until I find it. Baby chicks call me by name: "Cheep Cheap Cheep" ;-)

It looks great! I'm so jealous because I've been wanting to paint my "shack" for a couple of years! Good work!
