So I have discovered that painting is really hard - I mean hard to get a really nice, professional looking result. There is quite a learning curve understanding the behavior of paint, how to load just the right amount onto the roller, and use just the right amount of pressure to deliver the paint to the wall, etc...
And don't even get me started on doing the edging! Is it too much to ask to want a nice straight crisp edge? Does anyone have any tricks to achieve this? Has anyone used any of those edging tools and found them to actually work???
I have discovered that I love Benjamin Moore! It is really nice paint. We started with ceilings using Valspar flat ceiling white, and it came out terrible - very uneven and patchy. So we switched to Ben, and what a difference.
Buying paint at Apple Meadow True Value in Townsend.
Dean rolls the ceilings in the kitchen.
While I get to work in the master bedroom.
This is the wall that the head of the bed will be against. The color is Benjamin Moore's "waterfall".
Dean works on the edging.
And here's what that wall looked like when done.
The remainder of the walls are a light blue "arctic blue" from the same color strip.
And here is a not very good picture of a Scarlet Tanager who we have been seeing a lot of.
