paint n' caulk
painting is finally underway! We discovered the Minwax Helmsman spar varnish works really nicely on the stained trim, very low lustre.
I'm using Sherwin Williams this time around. I opened an account at their Milwaukee & Fullerton location. The paint is often 30% off for account customers. That makes it less than $30/gal. I was paying $35/gal+ for Ben Moore, and couldn't find a way to get a discount on that.
