things I learned or remembered about painting this week...
Dogs don't understand wet paint signs. Mojo has a blue ear and the tip of his tail is white, and Abe has new white patches on his side. I. HATE. Taping. I also HATE pulling down the tape. No matter what color white paint you have, it doesn't match any ceiling in any room in your house. Unless of course you don't get paint (or the previous tenants didn't) on the ceiling. Door frames in a corner suck. Dogs make good drop cloths. (I neglected to move the drop cloth to where I was painting, but Moj walked past me just as I dripped paint, so he saved our hideous carpet.) I have to start with white walls. Any other color, light or not, will change the color of the new paint. Painting sucks, but having walls painted NOT WHITE is awesome.
