I spent a few days painting the now-primed fascia, and most of that time was spent experimenting with a gloss furniture paint that I’ve had kicking around for more than a year (Rust-oleum Hunter Green). Trying to apply gloss paint evenly turned out to be an exercise in futility, so I sanded the gloss down with 400-grit sandpaper and then hit the whole thing with two coats of Behr “Marquee” matte paint in a color called “Secluded Woods” (base 1453, color S420-7).
Looks pretty good, but pay no attention to the mess behind it. I’m beginning to gut my “tools & bits & bobs” closet.
Now it’s time for the backscene!
