Painting the play house

Snowy house by PhylB
Last year I decided in a hurry to paint our play house. It had been blue for a few years (I'd used the leftover paint from our garden bench but it looked a bit weathered). Trying to save some money I found a tin of outdoor masonry paint and thought - how bad can it be on wood - after all it is meant for outdoors. So I repainted it in a rather Danish style...




Today I have started the long and tedious job of scraping off the masonry paint that doesn't seem to be able to survive the mildest of Scottish winters on wood and I'm blogging it to remind myself never to take that financial or time shortcut again. Grrr!
