Harrison loves all things orange and has been begging for an orange room for a year. Today I rearranged his room and painted one wall in these vibrant stripes. Don't look too closely they are not perfect since the walls have a bit of texture, but I have always wanted to do stripes! The other walls are not done. I have enough paint to do each wall in a full color. I think I may also want to add thin stripes in back as well, maybe even squiggly to hide any imperfections.
The project didn't start off so well. I was downstairs collecting all my tools for the project and sending Dustin up with loads of junk. He took particularly long the second trip and I assumed he was watching television. He comes downstairs after I called him and told me "Mom! One of the paint's spilled all over on their own!" ACK! I have no idea how he did it, but it only spilled on the roughly finishled wood floor we have upstairs and not on the carpeting in the hallway or even the oprange rug that graces Harrison's floor. McCartney, a girl after my own heart, ran down and got my camera and snapped a picture while I was cleaning it up with a rubber spatula, a joint compound spatula and well, my hands.
I saved almost the whole quart!
