A Simple Tip for Painting Your Structures


Nicholas Kalis


            When painting my structures I often choose to paint them outside in the backyard using a piece of cardboard to keep from making a mess of the pebbled area behind my home. Often this is late at night and perhaps I will only paint part of the structure. To insure that when I go back to paint part I may have missed either intentionally or unintentionally, that I get my colors correct, I have developed a simple technique. I use a nice black magic marker to write what color paint I used on the structure. Indicate brand, color name, color number and whether the paint is a spray can or from a bottle. While this information may seem easy to recall, it can be a nightmare when you get back to a structure days or weeks later.
