The only football team to come from Manchester!
I'm off this week so decided to paint my fence panels in the back garden..

It's a new fence, less than 12 months old, so I thought I'd use a brush to apply the wood stain as opposed to a spray which tends to go everywhere except on the fence..

I bought 2 large tubs of decent stain, said each tub covers approximately 18 fence panels.

Thought I'd be able to eek it out as I've got 39 panels to stain..

I started yesterday and did 12 panels before tub one was empty..

Took me over 6 hours in sunshine, wind and snow showers..

Back out first thing today, done 11 panels and have now run out of stain..

I've still got 16 panels to do and the shop has run out of the colour stain I've been using..

My back and knees are killing me and I've got a just over half painted back fence..


Grrrr..!
