The Shelves are all Painted! Hurray!
The project took just a little longer than predicted, but not much. After going through our stash of paint, I found a gallon that matched the walls! Thought that was handy so I went with it. It kind-of looks built in. (maybe if you squint) I cut in the edges with a brush and rolled with a smooth roller. Next time I would brush the whole thing. The brush didn’t leave a lot of marks and covers better. The rolling seemed never ending. Painting light over dark, even with primer, can often be endless.
Recycling, by using what you have, is always important… Saves time, money and resources.
Glad we’d had chicken the night before. We didn’t have any regular paint trays around. This was very handy! I’ll keep using it until it breaks.
So, I put a lot of stuff “away” just to get it off the floor. Most of these boxes are empty and waiting form me to paper mache them. I also lightly painted the boxes already paper mached – and I like the look. The idea is to make the area(s) look clean and tidy – so this still needs work. But, we’re on our way.
And, what is that on the other side of the room!!?? Looks like a mess and … another set of shelves!! They will have to wait for their paint job until the fall. Looking forward to having them cleaned up, too!
