Quick, quick, slow

I started painting my studio yesterday and had high hopes I would get the brunt of the job done the same day. But dark turquoise walls are really hard to paint over with a white colour. I had bought 3 liters and the vendor assured me it would be enough.

Spoilers! It wasn’t.


The clock was ticking for closing time at the paint store so I enrolled my mother to go and buy another can of paint, certain another liter would be enough.

Nope, still not enough. And the store is closed on Sundays.


So we turned to the internet to see if we could find another local store that carried the same brand of paint and was also open on Sundays. Turns out paint is not something store owners think you want to buy on Sundays. But the internet told us there was a place 15 km away so we decided to go there.

Turns out the internet was wrong and they weren’t open on Sundays at all. The second closest place was 65 km away and while I really wanted to get it done, I didn’t want it that bad. So I had to rethink my plan.

I thought I’d get nothing done but I have primed the fourth wall, sanded down the chest just before it started snowing, painted the chest once (dry time 8 hours, ugh) and I just finished painting the focus wall the first time. I can paint it again in 3 hours which I intend to do, if only so I can take off the masking tape and see the result.

I’m really liking the colour.
