I’m back with another update on paint! I’m sure you’re sick of these but it is fun for me to document our progress. Hopefully soon I can do some more fun posts about easier projects (for me and you!).
It was touch and go with me vs. our dining room ceiling this week but I won! I used two coats of primer and one coat of Behr ceiling paint to get the whole area really covered well. I was determined not to have to do two coats of regular paint so that one coat was very slow-going and very thick. I think just the one coat of final paint took me two hours? VERY slow-going and VERY deserving of the glass of wine I enjoyed afterwards!
Tonight I finally got all of the grey paint cut-in around the moldings and window…it was clearly more enjoyable since I could watch March Madness while I worked. I was going to also roll out a coat of paint but I realized I am all out of sponge rollers. Such a shame, I’ll have to wait another day. Hah, yeah right! I’m now enjoying a glass of wine for my productive two hours tonight. See a common theme here? I like to reward myself.
My goal is to get another coat of paint rolled out tomorrow because on Saturday morning, my parents will be here bright and early to help us install these bad boys! I am so excited to have crown molding in our dining room. It is one of only three rooms in our house without it and I know this final touch with be the (wait for it…wait for it…) crowning jewel! Yup, massive groan from the audience for that corny joke but I just had to.
