Painting Update

March 1, 2011

Wellll… I’m not done. There’s your update.

Just kiddin’.

A lot was done this weekend, but I never truly realized how much work it was. Even with a Power Painter. I still have the hallways, edging, and an extra coat to do before I’m satisfied. I didn’t even get to the guest bedrooms. My guests will just have to enjoy the stark white for now. So there.

Speaking of the Power Painter – it took me a while to get the hang of it. After putting it together and figuring out when to squeeze for more paint – I was like a pro. Until this…

Hi, nice little rainbow of gray (or grey)! In the midst of me rolling away, one of the paint-filled tubes became detached  and the paint started a-flyin’. I sort freaked out. My pants were covered, my tan flip-flops were tie-dyed grey (or gray), and I made some abstract art while I was at it. Good times.

Once I regained my composure (and the rainbow was covered), I started on the big wall. Here’s a shot – I used Fashion Gray as the darker accent color…

Lookin’ good! Disregard that hideous fan. And the horrible light. I forgot my camera so I had to use the trusty iPhone. Ah technology. 

And of course, I don’t believe in all work and no play. So after the painting fiasco, I stopped for a quick pick-me-up…

Hi, my name is Rachel and I’m addicted to frozen yogurt.

Don’t judge me.

After I got my fix, er, yogurt, back to painting I went and I’m still going. As long as it’s somewhat done by Friday, I don’t care. I just want to move in already. Sheesh.

So does this one…

Gratuitous Moosehead shot – what of it.

P.S. – Happy birthday to the best sister, Erica. Thank you for your support and love. I only hope that I give you as much as you give me.
