The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Cliffhanger colors

Painting boards

It's a bit of a leap of faith to do all this cutting and painting without first fitting everything together.

If my math is right, we'll end up with two bookcases, each orange on the inside and blue on the outside. To that end, we're painting some boards all the same color, some boards half and half, and are carefully considering each edge.

Assuming we don't need a second color coat, Friday will be the day of reckoning. How's that for a cliffhanger ending?
