Warning… this is a pictureless post.
Even though I was subject to
far too many a few Ogre Enforced breaks, I still managed to get the first coat of green up on the walls! Then, I busted my only roller frame…. after store hours.
BAD WORDS were said. Several of them.
There weren’t nearly as many holes in these three walls, but it still required 3 coats of primer to get a nice smooth base. I’ll get the last coat of green done today, and follow up with the trim.
After that, I’m hoping to get a few painted pieces of furniture started, but we’ll see how time goes. I have to clean my spattered floor and get the patio door glass shining! It will take a while for me to get the patio doors cleaned off. The previous paint job was really sloppy, and meant that I would have to scrape the glass anyway. Because I would have to put that much work in, I chose to skip taping off.
The big dilema in this room is the popcorn ceiling. Who in the world ever designed these things? No matter how hard I try, I just can’t get a clean line where I cut in the wall color. Because of the popcorn, it always seems to look messy.
I’ve though about that while I was working on the walls. I could, I suppose, just drop the ceiling color a half inch into the wall – which WOULD give me a nice clean line. But it would be boring. And, since I’m spending all this time on the project, I certainly don’t want the end result to be boring.
So, I’ve come up with an idea involving a cardboard template, a pencil, and my go to Stone White. Wish me luck!
Regardless of denomination, sect or creed, I’d like to wish all of you a peaceful, joy-filled Sunday.
I’d really love to see your comments on the projects I do and the ideas I have. I learn more from critiques than praise, but, honestly, I adore praise (and who doesn’t?).
Thanks for stopping by.
