Today, I was the star of the show.
Originally, because we were so far behind, today was going to be tile day and I wasn’t going to paint until everything was finished. But my smart Dad started thinking, and realized we could work it out this way.
So bright and early, I got started. With a brand new room, there is A LOT of paint to buy!
I started with a coat of primer on the walls, followed immediately by a coat of ceiling paint.
That green board is SUPER dark, and I thought I’d be happier with a second coat of primer. So, four hours later, I did that second primer, followed by a second coat on the ceiling.
Four hours later, the color actually went on the walls!
*Confession: I’m not super happy with the color. Actually, on my screen it looks just the way I wanted to in this shot. But in person, it’s too baby blue. I debated between this shade and a different one, and finally went with this one because I thought the other was too gray. Oops! Well, someday I’ll repaint it!
Four hours after that, I finished with the last coat of paint. Depending on how you count that, I did 6 coats of paint in one day. All by myself too! It was about 5 1/2 hours of painting, but I’m so happy it’s done now, instead of trying to paint around all the tile!
