It's All in the Preparation

Which is one reason I hate painting. But paint rollers tend to send a shower of droplets so I drug out several tarps and covered the shower and the adjacent cabinet, and one on the floor. Cleaned out a five gallon bucket, found a paint roller and grid. Now I'm good to go.

Just shake the paint up a bit.....

This was taken after I scooped up all the spilled paint with my bare hands since I didn't have anything to scoop it up with, and one foot had paint on it, and after I cleaned all the splattered paint from my newly laid tile and refinished cabinets. Dad blamed new-fangled plastic paint lids!

You know how I've been trying not to say "crap"? I now hold the world's record in number of times said in thirty seconds.

Until next time, may you have blessings and plenty of tarps,


  1. So sorry for the mess, that is really not funny at all. You portrayed it so well though, it made me smile. Hope the rest of this project goes much smoother!

  2. Oh - we must be sisters from different mothers. That looks like one of my projects. Hope it gets better.
