Near Playa San Miguel/Pueblo Nuevo de Bejuco – Costa Rica.
A counter top makeover quickly morphed into a totally-different style for a guest house outdoor-style kitchen. The original was painted about six or seven years ago and had seen much use. It deserved a renaissance treatment with fresh paint! It was easy to spot the areas of heavy use, and we tossed around ideas for dodging similar problems in the future. Hank and Marie have decided to put this part of their property on the market, and the counter top was one of few things that needed attention. See: “A Little Monkey Told Me” for a sneak peek.
We enjoyed passing many tranquil hours – in the zen of painting in harmony and at times making room for others to help as well. Thanks Patty and Wendy for your help!
On the final night, I worked late until a minor earthquake jolted me to a stopping point.
Several hours later we left for the airport, and I flew to Panama later that day. There was a large section of counter without improvements – on each side of the sink and beneath the area for the cook top.

Marie, with training wheels off, soared past all self doubt and did an amazing job with the remainder! She emailed images several days later!
But that wasn’t enough – she also painted a terra-cotta piggy bank for a baby-shower gift!
How great it was to receive the images, but even greater was to read the excitement in Marie’s emails!
Well done, Marie! Your training wheels should be passed along to someone else, as you soared to the top of the class!
