Rollin' in...paint

Another busy week as we prepare for a trip to Santa Barbara for some research, then home to prep for Thanksgiving at home! :)

Managed to paint the trailer interior and put it back together this week. While I was at the landfill last weekend I remembered someone telling me paint can be picked up free there. Drop off your half can of latex and someone else may use it for their house, garden toys or, in our case, trailer. I picked up a can of tan and another of a green that matches the original olive green stove, though the paint's a couple of shades lighter than the stove. I added some white to a bit of the tan to make a lighter shade for the walls, then used the green to paint the beveled edge of the drawers and cabinet doors, then used the original, darker tan for the faces of the cabinets and drawers. The girls helped paint the drawers, doors and interior. They're really into rolling on paint now!

A little closer.

The orange kitty wasn't very impressed.
