Painting

Painting today. There's something therapeutic about choosing a color and painting a room with a fresh coat. We picked baby-blue for the master bedroom. Actually, I think the official name is ocean blue. Seems appropriate since we're so close to the ocean. All we need now is a painting of Crystal Cove to hang on the wall there.

Thought one coat would do it, but it needed another. Had to motor back to Home Depot for a second gallon.

I have some experience painting. My dad owned apartment buildings when I was a kid. I used to help him remodel on his days off. I can still hear my ol' man saying, "It would be nice if you got more paint on the walls than on the floor." =) [I used to employ the heavy sling-it method.]

Painting is all about preparation. After you tape everything up, and trim the borders, the rest is cake. I'm a terror with that roller. It came out really nice, especially after the second coat dried. Didn't get a drop on the floor, either. Pops would be proud. The living room is next. How does mint-green sound? Or maybe sage?
