So, I have this house and I want to make it look better. What’s better than color, right? So, when I found a treasure trove of painting supplies left by the last owner, I hit the paint store and picked a great color to add spice to my living room. What follows is what happened when I painted my mantle.
Meh, right? So, I hit the Internets and they told me I could paint trim really easily and without a lot of taping. Ok! Minimal tape, check! Let’s get some color!
I chose Relentless Olive because it sounds like a martini.
Houston, we have paint!
After the first coat. This was when I realized more tape would have been a good idea. Damn you Internets!
After the second coat. See what I mean about tape being my friend? Painting in straight lines = Not my skill set.
Week 2 of painting. I add more tape.
I also discover this gizmo which is way better than a roller!
All finished! Not too shabby, huh?
Oh wait. It is kinda shabby. Guess I’ll be doing more painting to correct the mistakes I made.
