Right I’ve got started as you can see.  Unfortunately a combination of housework and rain means no action for today but you can see my progress so far below.

End of stage 1 - Project Gate

 So far comments from passers by have been good and they have seen the fun side of it and are looking forward to the finished product.  Which I have to say will look entirely different from this.

My conumdrum so far has been finding suitable weather proof paint in the right colours.  I need a lemon yellow for a start and am wondering if I can mix an internal wood colour with an external one to get the colour I need.  I will probably have to finish it off with yacht varnish anyway to ensure it is both weather proof and graffiti proof too!

Well if anyone has any comments to make I’d love to hear them.
