Another new!

10:29 PM

Hey, guess what?

I learned to paint today, and it is a good thing I like it, because there is a whole lot more to come. The living room, dining room, and bedrooms are done and look lovely! Thank you Dave Austin for all your help! And Dad too. Will and I needed it!!

No sneak peaks yet, however I did take a few "before" pictures today.

On the list tomorrow: trim, baseboards, and the bathroom.

Then we are off to an afternoon garden wedding! How refreshing that will be. I have to admit, I am looking forward to putting a dress back on and old ragged "paint" clothes off, at least for the afternoon. Later, right back to painting.

We've got a deadline to fulfill!

Date to be totally moved out with old apartment cleaned: May 31

Days left: 10! (I think we will have PLENTY of time)

Acquired terms of the day:
-Painting sieve
-Paint screen (I learned after buying a screen in replace of the sieve, a sieve and screen are most definitely not interchangeable. Back to the paint store I went
-Flat paint
-Eggshell paint
-What "to cut-in" is

...and

-Popcorn ceiling :)



"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus".
-Philippians 4:6
