I bought a casted aluminum garden love seat from a furniture store in Marikina. The store owner Ana claimed that she had this custom made for her grandchildren but just forgot to bring it home.
I bought it last week and brought it to the farm.
Because it was new and so white, the kariton looked so bulok beside it so I repainted the 100-year-old carriage.
It now looks a little bit alive again. I should repaint this once a year to protect it from the harsh elements.
I was so engrossed with my painting job that I didn’t notice the mess I have created. The white sticky paint was all over my arms, my hands, and it covered my ring. I couldn’t remove the paint with plain water. I told Sgt. Pepper to buy water based paint yun pala iba binili nya. No wonder the consistency was so thick. I had a hard time cleaning myself up. I had to use a sponge brush for cleaning to scrub the paints off my arms, fingers, elbows, hands. Ang sakit, namula yung balat ko.
