Everything looks better with a coat of paint


The trouble with me learning about the joys of paint is that now every project takes three times as long. Gotta lay down some primer and then pretty colors before Mark can start putting it all together.

I'm attempting to keep the obsession in check, though. For example, I didn't paint the underside of the upcoming sofa loft...although I really did think about it.

I would paint the underside because it adds a protective element against the 'elements'. I understand that no one will see it; but I believe that projects will last longer. Thank you for sharing your stories. I learn so much and stay motivated with my own efforts. Blessings.
