After close to a decade of bare plywood doggy gates, my son suggested maybe we’d like to paint them. So, I bought a quart of colonial green paint. From the chip, it looks nice and soft and probably won’t clash with anything.


The can remains unopened. I get the feeling this is one of those projects that is going to happen … someday. A very long someday from today.

Too many projects. Too little time. The paint can wait.

Does anyone want to set up a betting pool on this one?

  1. Perhaps you could find a couple of those paint sprayers that spray in the depth of the night, all sorts of colourful stuff. They might even doing it for just the price of the paint spray. They only want their work to be seen.Or perhaps you don’t have them in your area

    1. We don’t have those talented graffiti artists around here. Rank amateurs, I’m afraid. Besides, there are INDOOR gates. When the weather gets a little cooler, I can take the gates out on the deck and paint them there.


    1. Too HOT to paint, here. Waiting (that’s the current excuse) for autumn when (in theory) I can take the gates out to the deck and paint there. Of course, that still leaves the frames and stuff which are attached to the walls. Minor details.
