A LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE #2

The picture above is from an earlier post about the little house that my husbands’ grandparents lived in.  We were able to have it moved to our current home and the guys got it shingled.

During a few days of warm weather, I was able to get it scraped and repainted.

While I love the look of old weathered wood…..

…and hated to lose the patina,  the wood is also very dry and porous, so I felt like it just had to be protected.

It wasn’t very hard to see where I had already been!  Now for windows…..and maybe some landscaping.

    LIke you I feel the wood needs painting to preserve it. And I DO like to scrape and paint. It’s looking really good!
