What I first learned in Painting 101 is it’s easier to hire someone else to do it. Secondly, I learned I needed to make an appointment to have my roots done.
After getting a quick lesson at the paint department in Home Depot, from the person who has since become my new best friend, I headed home to put my new skills to work. Because after painting an entire wall with a two inch brush, I realized I needed a paint roller. Life altering decision. I would still be painting that room.
But regardless of my new paint roller owning status, painting is a tedious job.
Tape. Paint. Wait. Paint. Untape. Retape. Paint. Wait. Paint. Cocktails.
Cocktails to celebrate you finally finished a room. And then a cocktail in misery when you realize you have to paint the next room.
