Whitewashing the chicken coop

Gather your equipment
Time to whitewash the inside of the chicken coop. Now I know why Huck Finn "let" Tom do the whitewashing. It is messy and time consuming. If you choose to do this pick a cool day with a nice breeze! 
Have a ladder for the high spots!

Nice plan wood
The whitewash and 4" brush

I used Hydrated Lime 12cups to 2gallons water. You need to keep mixing the lime/water as you work, it is not thick more like muddy water. Don't try to use a roller it won't work. Brushing it on is the only way.
Brushing it on, no particular way!
It dries to a real pretty white
