I love to paint…..just not my walls! I’m getting ready for the “Where Bloggers Create Blog Party” and needed to spruce up my place, so I have been painting a little. A little is right. I haven’t been very enthused about it, so I found myself making excuses to avoid painting. I took Friday off from work and got started. First I “cut in” around a door, and about 3 feet of the baseboard. Then I wandered into the kitchen for some diet Coke. Came back, cut in the corner, took a sip of my soda and cut in about 2 feet of the baseboard.
Went to the kitchen and got some chips to go with my drink, ate those, sipped my drink and cut in around a window. This went on for about 3 hours and I have only cut in about 1/2 of my room and gained 2 pounds! At this rate, I’ll be painting right up to the wire on June 19th!
I’m going from a light color to a medium tone, but it is still going to take 2 coats (oh boy can’t wait!) . Anyway…my new bloggy friends are worth this extra effort. It’s like when your mother-in-law comes to visit and you give your house a good cleaning. I want things to look nice for all of you! Well, I better get back to painting….the brush is calling out to me!
Hope you will join me for the party and see the finished results! Have a safe holiday!
