Painting is Hard.

Posted on

I naively assumed that painting would be quick, easy, and fun.  How hard can it be to put some tape up and roll some paint onto a wall?

So it turns out that it is not fun, it takes forever, and it’s harder than you think. Here’s a tip for any do-it-yourselfers out there: don’t ever paint at night, especially if you’re using a light color.  I learned this the hard way, after painting the dining room and hallway and then having to re-do them both because they turned out so streaky.  Chris can tell you, I was NOT happy about that.

We picked a lovely neutral color called Seaside Sand for the living room, dining room, and hallway.  We also painted the ceilings and trim.  Up next:  the bedroom! And right quick too because we’re having our *new bed* delivered next Wednesday.
