I am remembering how much I dislike painting
. You've never heard me mention that before, have you?!
To save money, I have been gleaning from my many cans of paint which were purchased for other walls, and through this project I have come to realize:
1. All paint is not created equal.
2. All tape is not created equal. (And if paint seeped under this tape as it does with cheapo masking tape, I am afraid all will hear my laments!)
As far as the progress, all 48 stripes have been painted once, some twice, and some even thrice. (Is it wrong to sound British when July 4th looms in a few minutes?! :-) Red paint is very annoying
, and I feel it will need a fourth coat. Actually, I know
it will need a fourth coat. All 36 squares are painted. A few might need that extra touch. The solid green wall has been slathered but awaits a second slathering. Well, not technically
a slathering, but if you saw my "painting garments," you would think I was "slathering!"
It's now late, I need to clean up the kitchen, get clothing out of the dryer, clean the paint from my body (I am very fitting for a certain children's song as I am red, yellow, black, and white. And green!), my arms are aching, and I really should not be on the computer!
