Weekend Wind-Down #71

(SEBADOH's "Bakesale" is fun to paint along to)

The last day of our three-day weekend started off pretty much the same as yesterday - we painted the edges around the outsides of each wall and around the trim again before using the roller to apply the second coat. We barely had enough paint to finish and even ended up watering down the scant last bit of paint we had in the bucket, not wanting to have to buy more for the tiny bit of painting we had left to do. Missy even scraped paint off the inside of the pail and applied it onto a tiny roller, which she used to touch up some spots. Luckily for us, it was *just enough* to get us through...in retrospect, we probably should've primed the walls first with Killz instead of having to use two coats of lavender...

Later in the afternoon, we took off to LOWE'S to buy a shiny new REGISTER to replace our mangy old one...

To me, I have fond memories of painting a room to Renaldo and the Loaf albums... but Sebadoh could be good too, yes. Either way, painting walls is fun! I hope I'm in a situation again where I can paint the walls of my room... unfortunately, most rental type places frown on that kind of thing. I painted my last room... but had to paint it with the white paint the rental peeps gave me... free paint is a slight plus... "blah" paint is a big minus!

We love our new color. It makes it feel like a whole new room!
