No great tutorial today unless you count me telling you how NOT to do something a good tutorial!
I am working on a project that should be finished by the end of next week that I am super excited about!
BUT, as most projects go…it has come with its own problems.
It all started when I wanted to paint white over a somewhat dark tan color. I had the white paint already, so on a whim one day I grabbed a roller and brush and got to work. I knew it would probably need 2 coats but after I got one portion done, I knew I had made a big mistake.
I should have PRIMED the wall first. I wasn’t sure how many coats it was going to take at that point, but knew it would be more than 2. You would think as many times as I have read about John and Sherry’s painting projects, I would know – prime before painting unless you want to have a very sore arm and an empty can of paint.
So my tip for the day – PRIME first, then paint (especially when painting a lighter color over a darker color.)
Now excuse me, I am off to find some Advil for my aching arm and shoulder and then headed to paint another coat. I think I have lost count – is this the third or fourth
or tenth coat by now?
