We learned a few things this weekend:
- It takes approximately 34 man hours, three sheets of sandpaper, 5 cups of drywall compound, a 1/4 cup of lightweight joint compound, two brushes, two rollers, and 5 gallons of primer to prep the walls in 5 rooms in our house.
- Old curtains are a hot item on Craigslist.
- Dogs are known to never let their pregnant owners out of sight.
- Cody only naps on his left side, and when he is leaning against something.
- Quite often, when he won’t leave his pregnant owner’s side, that “something” is a freshly painted wall, and hilarity ensues.
Why yes, yes you do have a little something on your hindquarters. And ear, and shoulder, and whisker, and eyebrow.
We got a little carried away with ourselves this weekend, in part because of that law that states that you can’t stop painting when you still have half a tray of primer left, you just have to start prepping the next space on your list. And before you know it, you have no idea what time of day it is, you haven’t eaten, and you’ve covered more ground than than you anticipated doing in a weeks time.
I have a lot of pictures to go through, check back tomorrow to see some dramatic “after” photos of our freshly primed home. BYE BEIGE.
