I'm freaking out. No one will care about this except me, my immediate family, and people who can see our property, but we are painting the house and garage/barn. The guys finished prepping the barn and got the first coat of paint on today. And it's red.
O. M. G.
That's... that's a lot of red.
Okay, so a big change is hard to adjust to. And this is just the first coat. And it was still wet when I saw it, and and and...
And holy crap, it's crazy-red, right? It's like stop-sign red. Fire engine red. Harlot fingernail red. MY BARN IS A HARLOT OH MY GOD.
Very fortunately, I have a neighbor whose house is non-harlot red, and she still has the paint color. If I wake in the morning to discover that my barn is still as red as a baboon's behind, I can do something about it. But holy cow, people.
It's one thing to make a mistake with your dining room color, but painting your barn to look like streetwalker headquarters is an error on practically a global scale. You can see the damn thing from space. If you look us up on Google Earth, that'll be us pulsing away in the center of Vermont.
