This makes me want to grab a paint can and just go at it somewhere! I'd be afraid to paint anywhere but my own home, though, but maybe I've got a spot somewhere. For instance, my own carport I was thinking just yesterday had gotten so ugly from all the projects we do on it that it could do well with a coat of paint. What if I got artistic and did something like this instead to greet me every time I pulled up the driveway?
