Hope asks how she can help with the Airstream every time I head out to work on it and the day finally came when she could help paint! She loves painting and she loved being able to paint with the big roller. Eventually I let her take over with the brush work and she had a great time. Jonathan, William, Emma, and Faith all took turns applying one or more of the three coats it took to cover the strong brown color of the hardboard and pegboards.
Later that afternoon, I came back out with a paintbrush and added white to the wrap around stripe across the back of the Airstream. It's just a little extra color but it really makes the Thunderbird blue pop!
