I hate painting

Today's project:  paint a bathroom.  Fuck, talk about tedious.  At least with a bedroom you can clear out all the furniture, remove or tape any fixtures (outlet covers, etc.) and get the sprayer out.  A bathroom is all edgework -- around the toilet, the countertop, the shower stall.  Fuck me.

New Gate

I just finished rebuilding the side gate to our back yard.  Here are before and after photos:

Yeah, it's not perfectly square.  Considering the ground is uneven, the post sunk in the concrete (which I didn't try to replace, just stripped and waterproofed) is tilted, and I only used hand tools, it's a pretty good job.

I wish I had Steamboat McGoo's wood shop, but I don't have the space.  Not only would it be much easier to get stuff fitted perfectly, jobs would take about half the time.
