Pooped from Painting!

We had a successful painting party at The Keltons's Cozy Cottage.

First, we did a little wet sanding......

No, David is not posing, this is how he always sands! Don't you?!?

Then to caulking...

We saved the best for last- cutting in and then a good coat of primer. 

 I have realized I enjoy all the prep work and painting.  I almost find it relaxing.  We turn on the ipod to my classics list -Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, James Taylor- and before you know it, we have been working for hours!  Towards the end of the day, I realized for everything we had primed, we still had to paint two more coats. 

Man, now that I htink about it, I would just assume leave the walls white.  Nahh...we will be on to more painting tomorrow.  It has been a slow process, but I know it will be all worth it.  It is amazing how a fresh coat of paint can really transform a home.  Especially with Mythic. 
Mythic paint-now that is a breath of  fresh air!

If you really enjoy painting and prepping, come on over, I'd be glad to turn my house over to you!

Paint really can make a huge difference. I can't wait to see your finished rooms.

Hi there, so nice to meet you. Thanks for visiting my blog.
It seems as if you both have got your work cut out for you. But at least there is no shortage of paint. And I admire you for liking the prep part of a project. I am to impatient for that I like to go straight to the finish. It gets me in trouble often because in the end it takes more work to do a good job without the proper preparation.
I'll be around to see how your rooms will turn out next.
Greetings, Marianne
