|painting and cutting in|
The past painters had colored the hallway ceilings the same color as the walls.....basic dull, dark beige. It took 4 coats of ceiling white to cover. Wow what a difference.
So in-between the hall painting I painted the main bathroom as well. Giving myself only 4 hours a day as I decided I did not have to be a mad woman and get it all painted overnight. 4 hours of stiff and soreness is much better than 8. And I have the time....right.

After my 4 coats on the ceiling came the walls. As I was not that fond of the blue hue in the bathroom, I added a half gallon of white to the grey kitchen and bathroom paint I was using and painted the hall walls. I had thought at the time; if I did not like it it would make a good base color.....I love it. A nice classy looking grey and once the closet doors are sanded and repainted in a bright white with the trim is going to look stunning.

I love it when a plan comes together. Now I have to paint a cardboard sample to get color matched as I do not need to paint Kitchen and Bathroom paint in the bedrooms and living room.
There is a bit of time for that though.. still have a kitchen and the remainder of a hallway to paint.
But today is cleanup day. Put things back in order and clean off the kitchen counters so I can see them again for the weekend.
I also wanted to give a big thank-you to Carl and Sam for all the help they gave and the very kitty concern they showed. They watched and gave meow support the whole time. Carl was such a trooper even when he sneezed in the drywall dust and had to sit to get his face cleaned. lol
