Know when to hold and know when to fold.....

My tools for my mission



So, do you cut in first or follow up after?    You can see I cut in

I had to laugh when I looked up to see all three colors!  Remember those blocks of neopolitan ice cream you used to get?   The ones individually wrapped?   Seems all the mom's used them for birthday parties when I was little.   So I had to chuckle to myself at the new white ceiling, the old pink walls and new beige wall color.     Up til this point I was kind of discouraged.    The wall color looked like baby poop!  Seriously!  I was blaming it on the lighting so I needed the levity.

The walls are finished and the ceiling is finished and I am stopping for the day.   Not bad for 5 to 6 hours worth of work.   I have no sandpaper to sand the trim so I am leaving that for tomorrow (or even next weekend).   Two boo boos and I know it is time to stop.   First I ran the roller into the white ceiling with the beige wall paint.    I true signal I was tiring. 

And then there is the boo boo to my finger from pinching it in the all in one plyer thing.  Man that thing bled.
and of course the glasses got a bit of fall out too.   Need to clean these puppies up to I can relax and stitch the night away.

You're doing a wonderful job with that room! I always have doubts about wall color choices while I'm in the middle of painting. But wait...I think you're going to like the color once it's all finished and you've added furniture and lighting and things on the walls.
