Summer Project 2017 part 1 The Goat Hay Barn

The summer of 2017 is turning out to be pretty productive around the farm.
Since we are both home everyday now until school starts again we decided to get some painting done on all of these farm buildings that FabHub has built over the years. 

FabHub and his brother decided to paint the big barns and I chose to paint our little ones.
I have collected colorful mistinted paint for years for various projects around the yard, but mostly I didn't care if it was interior or exterior, I just wanted color.

To do the barns we got more selective and wanted to go with only exterior paints.
The guys didn't care what color the paint was, they just wanted exterior paint that they could mix together and get some protection on the barns.

So, several months ago I started keeping an eye out for the mistints at Lowe's while I was working there. The problem was that it was winter time. Not much exterior painting going on when I started looking for it. That changed as we got closer to spring though.

Some of these below are my really old acquisitions and some are more current.

For my first project I decided to do the goat hay barn.

There was a lot of variety in colors to choose from in my paint supply, but I decided that the greens would be a good place to start.

Can you believe it? $9 each?
This is some very good paint.

This is what I found when I opened the cans.

Dumped them all in the bucket and I got this.

Stirred it up and I got this.

Put it on the hay barn and I got this.

I had an audience. They are standing in front of the next project.
