OK, it isn’t as exciting as my title would suggest but it does always feel good to see some spiffing up in the midst of tearing everything down and out.
I got some pictures this morning in the natural light so you could see the color better. It still isn’t great because I am just taking pictures with my phone. My tripod is somewhere in the home office mess in other rooms so this will be as good as we get for a while.
I ran out of paint half way through so now I have to find time to get to the paint store. That will be a bit of a challenge. I’m using a much thicker nap for the roller this time and it is putting a lot of paint on the walls. I may not have to come back for a second coat.
I was also delighted to discover a little feature on my cutting-in cup last night. This is probably well-known to the rest of the world and obvious to others but I totally missed it until I happened to tap my paint brush against the side of the cup. There is a magnet there to hold the paint brush!
When I pulled up my carpet, I did find a few fibers of what is likely the original carpet. Surprise, surprise, this 1978 ranch-style home had brown shag carpet!
I’ll tell you, it has not been easy to stay focused on this little room when this is going on outside now:
Spring. Happening right before my eyes!
Don’t worry, the project supervisor is on the job and won’t let me quit.
