New Paint Job







The new paint job on the This N That Thrift Store. Before I was President, the shop was a mustard yellow for years and all seemed happy but I noticed the paint was peeling, so I got an organization which spruced up buildings in the neighborhood for free,to paint the building if we would buy the paint. I thought that was a good deal so I bought the blue paint and they painted the shop which made it look fresher and more inviting. 
Today someone else has gone one better as it has a more professional look. When I took some items by to donate I was greeted with this cheery appearance., Don't you just love the fake windows? 
The Kitty Justice is to take off your hat to the new President for getting this done but I bet the blue paint job I had done was much cheaper on the budget.

Hi Dianne ~~ Love the paint job that you were responsible fro. I love the bright welcoming colors and design. Lovely, good work.
Thanks for your comments and I am glad you got a good belly laugh from my post.
I got out today and put some water on my plants as it was a warm day 23 C which is about 73 F. So Spring is really here.
Take care dear friend, Love, Merle.

Unfortunately I was not responsible for that paint job but for a blue one when I was President of the Shop. I did get the local hardware store to give us a discount on the paint and volunteers to paint it so it cost very little for my spruce up. I bet this one cost a few coins which was done by whoever is in charge now. Peace

Please read my reply to Merle. I think the murals are fantastic. When I was President I just wanted to change the color of the peeling paint. Peace
