Day 4 -- Painting continues

I started painting the clapboard and decided I don't like the color. It's peach, which I think is too grownup looking. I want something brighter for the girls.

Had hoped to drag Mike -- er -- convince him -- to go to the dollhouse store to pick up my shingle dye and doorknob (and maybe wiring stuff), but he and Dan thought it'd be more fun to take a motorcycle trip. Sheesh. What are their priorities, anyway?
