Painting Anchor Cottage

I am painting the whole store Sherwin William's Dover White.

We painted all the trim and all the fixtures Dover White.

To do this we had to move everything off the walls and into the center of the store.

So far only one crash and burn, a ceramic dog dish)-:

The color of Dover White can be described as a "diffusion of  light".

What a mess!!

We filled all the nail holes and sanded the Spackle, now everything  that didn't have a sheet over it is covered in a light dust.

Lucky for me the professional painter had plenty of drop cloths(-:

This will be our 5th season in this location and it feels good to have the store all fresh and new.

Now to put it all back together again.

BTW, I am open today, so come on in and trip over the mess with me.
 Happy St Paddy's day to you all!

Looking forward to seeing the new look.
Save the broken dog dish pieces for a mosaic project!
