While in storage for the past eight years it became a bit rusty.
Dad told me all I had to do was take a wire brush to it and spray it with Rustoleum hammered red paint. Easy schmeasy! However, without thinking I didn't buy the spray paint while down south and since you can't buy it in the city I instead got a can of Rustoleum Painter's Touch in Apple Red, a paint brush and made an afternoon of it.
Since it was quite brighter then the existing paint I decided to paint the entire thing instead of just the inside. I guess I did a pretty good job. About 15 people stopped to talk to me while I was working.
It was really hot and gross out so I filled up the baby pool and let Clara splash away while I worked in the shade. Once I was in the shade working it turned into one of those magical feeling moments life throws at us from time to time. The baby was quiet and content throwing out a giggle every now and then, there was a soft breeze flowing and I had a paintbrush in my hand. (Its what I love most.)
Is there really anything more magical then a sweet baby playing in her pool on a hot summer day in front of her mamma's garden? I think not!
Finished Product! Now it needs to hurry up and dry so I can reattach the wheels and cart my baby around!
Happy Summer Solstice Sweet Friends!
