Painting the Chicken Coop

We acquired two chicken coops last year (I believe) and they were ratty and old looking on the outside (the insides are very, very nice).  So I decided that I would paint them.  I have a rather large collection of ‘oops’ paint that I have collected over the years and I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to use them.  We also figured…why not let the girls help?030The ‘before’ picture… boring coop, clean girls…031I started out by poring each girl a paint color in their own container.  Cedi of course got pink and Capri was given a light blue.032   035

 036It didn’t take me too long to realize I might as well just open a bunch of different colors and let them go at it… 037  039Capri soon realized it was fun to paint herself and mommy… 040  042I had a fun time painting with my girls…I hope this is signs of many more fun ‘crafty’ times ahead.  Cedi actually did a really good job.  She would paint a strip…rotating colors every 2-3 inches and then mama would go and ‘blend the drips’.  044 I do have to say Capri was probably a little young for the project but towards the end she was very content just putting paint from one can to the other…as you can see from the pictures of the coop…it didn’t really matter to me either.043 

An after picture…we just sort of put all the colors on and blended as we went :)  Now, we just have to get Grandpa to find us some chickens!
