Day 17, Monday- Covers in just seven coats!

For reasons which I am still not entirely clear on, dark colors require more coats of paint than light ones.

No, really.

To paint over the “God-Awful-Green” with white paint requires one coat of primer, one coat of white, and a little touch up.

To paint over the same “God-Awful-Green” with red paint requires one coat of primer, four coats of red, three touch-ups, and finally two more coats.

When the time comes to paint over the red, however, a sandblaster will be required.

The reason I mention this is simple- I had to wait for everything to dry.

Plaster, paint, the works.

So I slacked off. Did nothin’. So there.

Total costs: $1,368

What did you do with all your free time?
There was no wall to accidentally put a sledgehammer through to give you more fun with the plaster??

Don't tell me you played at the house with the family in it!!!!
that would be just crazy talk!
