Sucks. I swear, 3 hours of taping (not counting the hassle of moving everything out & removing switchplates etc.) and then 7-8 hours of actual painting.
Before: f*cking pink. Seriously who paints the entire downstairs of their house pink? I still have have to paint the living/dining/stairway but even thinking about it is making me twitch… it’ll wait.
All the lovely painters tape. I only used 1 & 1/2 ROLLS. Oh and I Kilz the heck out of the ceiling where at some point in the distant past (before I owned the house) there was a Grease Incident.
After: f*cking mint green.
The color is “Sage Tint” from Behr. It’s supposed to be dusty pale green. Instead it’s minty. I thought it didn’t look right on the paint lid, but I let everyone talk me into “it’s fine, it’s how it’s supposed to look, it’ll be darker when it’s covering the walls”. Bullshit. It’s not terrible, but it’s not exactly what I wanted. It’s good with the cabinets & floor title, but I’m not loving it with the back splash.
(btw, any person even thinking about saying “you can re-paint” to me, I will cut you.)
And my manicure?
I’ll be re-painting those this afternoon. The fun it never ends.
Quick BBP & new scissor update.
Love the handles on the new pair. I’m not using them yet, I put them in my Chatelaine drawer, the next time I work on that I’ll use them. Now all I need is another pair of junky scissor that I won’t mind using on metallics. I stitched her skin in while watching Dexter & True Blood on DVR this morning. What would I do without it?
BBP’s skin is pink. 818 pink. At first I thought, ick. Now… I kinda like it. I mean she has blue hair for Pete’s sake. Hmmmm maybe her skin should be yellow… I keep calling her Marge.
And I know everyone in blog land has been talking about their Kindle’s. So I’ll talk about mine! 😉 No, I really only have one thing to add:
Mobi Pocket. Dh (only computer that runs Windows in the house is dh’s company laptop) used the software to put one of my .pdf Ellora’s Cave books onto my Kindle. Worked like a dream. Except for the having to use Windows thing… but other than that. *Love*
