Yesterday afternoon we decided to start painting and things went so smoothly that we finished by dinner time (which was a margarita and some TJ's Chili Lime Cashews for me). We didn't run out of paint, or have any spills... no injuries or falls off the ladder... it was probably my best painting experience to date.
The no VOC paint (Freshaire from HD) went on very splotchy, as you can see from this photo. We feared a second coat would be necessary, but it dried into a beautiful even finish with just the one coat -- nice.
When I chose the paint color, I was worried it might be too similar to the color we had -- the color I did not like at all -- but when I started edging, I could see everything would be alright. We keep walking through the room and commenting on how much we like the color, so it's a winner.
No more pictures today. I'll save those for the after post next week. How are your rooms coming along?
