I've been painting the interior of my house the past few months. SWIMBO thought a couple of pieces of furniture needed repainting to match new interior etc.

I took a butlers tray table out into the shed and spent a few hours sanding and then painting it. It had slats so took a while plus she wanted "shabby chic" whatever that is.

After my endeavours I noticed the shed had a lot of dog hair on the ground from my dogs who sleep in there at night. So i decided to vacuum it up using the industrial vac. Unfortunately this thing is either a blower or a vac depending on the setting……and yep I didn't check before turning it on whether it was set to vac

It wasn't, and it was pointing toward the freshly painted and still wet table..

End result was a hair covered butlers table, now waiting to be redone. Me, once calm again, opened the Hendricks…..

Sounds like shabby chic to me!

Just tell her it was the best you could do since she did no provide pictures.

On a serious side, I feel your pain. I have done similar things in the past.

If your dog's hair loves paint so much…maybe it's better than the sable hair brushes I buy. Bind a few together and give it a try. Blessings sometimes come in unexpected ways.

Dog "shed hair" brushes have not been kickstarted yet. "What's better than painting with ones best hairy friend at one's side!" You can quote me on that one…no charge!

now there is an idea….one of them sheds enough fur for a little dog. Low overheads and a ready supply too.
