Hidey Ho!! Brutus here! Mom is letting me do our post #199!
I got to help mom with the teeter she built a few weeks ago - she couldn't have done it without me! I'll show you the most important parts of the project I made possible, kinda like my own little "Tool Time".
First, make sure you have all the supplies you need. Today we are going to paint a teeter. So we need a teeter - check (covered with plastic behind me) - and paint stuff - check.
It's very important to select the right kind of roller for your painting needs! I prefer these nice sheep-skin looking ones:
Next, prepare your tools by play bowing to them:
Now use this wood mixer thingy to stir up your paint. You might want a human around to hold the can so you don't dump it (not that I would know from experience...)
The mixer also makes an excellent chew toy, although make sure you only do this BEFORE stirring the paint with it!
Come to think of it, so does the roller...
Next, grab the mixer thingy and make your human chase you around a little.
OK, lets get back to work! Pick up the paint roller and....
What do you mean I can't use a roller without thumbs???
OK, this next part is really important. Get comfy & take a nice, long nap. Let your human do all the grunt work!
And when you wake up, voila! The paint is already dry!! If I must say so myself, that is one fine looking piece of equipment I created!
The last thing to do is to try out the teeter and make sure it works properly. Here we go:
Project successfully completed! Now where is my treat???
Have a great weekend everyone! Be sure to tune in Monday, mom's got something special planned for post #200!!
