No helpers

When it came time to painting their home's exterior, Bernie had lots of offers of help but no-one turned up on the said days so he was left to toil alone. In fact the only helper turned out to be Bernie's lovely wife who kept him going with tea and scones. Now that the job is completed the would-be helpers are quick to claim the glory of the finished result.

Somewhat of an old hand at painting, this is the tenth home exterior that Bernie has tackled.

The house was in a terrible weathered state before the painting commenced. Neighbours who had endured the mess for some time, stood and applauded the new look home when the paintwork was complete in Resene Sonyx 101 tinted to Resene Sandstone.
