Since I retired I have been spending lots of time in the workshop building some boxes.
After working in there regularly I decided to do some fixer upping.
I added a subpanel, insulated the garage door, built some bookcase style shelf units, and now the painting has commenced.
I will never be accused of being a carpenter or an electrician but when it comes to painting I sure am incredibly slow, but fortunately I make up for it by being really bad at it too.
Y’all have a great day.

Lol. I’m the same way. I’m a slow and less than impressive painter. No way I’d hire me. Then again I work pretty cheap for myself.

When people ask if I will do a project for them – i say if you are Ok with Shoddy work, that takes too long and is incredibly over priced, then I am your man…..... so far no takers.

It was touch and go for a while but I got the painting finished and it looks real nice.
Now that’s it’s over I am glad I did it.
I have been putting the workshop back together over the last couple of days.
If I can just get past this case of rearrange-a-rittis I think it will be okay again.
