It's time to wash down the bright green railing on the upper level of the main house. Today was the day.
It was pretty tricky to wash the wooden slats. It's difficult to get into all the nooks and crannies created by the crisscross design. As I scrubbed the railing, it became clear that it really needs a fresh coat of paint. Painting the terrace side will be intricate and tedious, but doable.
My question is how will I reach the other side? I can use a brush and put my hand through, but I won't be able to see what I'm doing. I'll be painting more or less blindly. I'm not convinced that's a smart idea.
I shared my concerns with Kevin and he took out his tall ladder and leaned it from the driveway to the top of the railing. It reaches no problem. Yay! I'm not afraid of heights... but I am afraid of unstable ladders... so, as long as we can find a way to make sure the ladder is secure, then I'll give it a try. Stay tuned...
