Paint. A Lot of It.


Hello, Hoomins. Iz paint post day!
The following photos are questionable at best as they were taken with my LG, which is two years old and was run over after I dropped it face down in a torrential downpour.
Nothing but state of the art equipment is used here at Rehab.
We filled our cart with tintable semi-gloss (I like scrubbable paint, period. You've seen my crew.), white high gloss for the trim, and chalkboard paint. Did I forget to mention we have a chalkboard planned? I already have magnetic primer at home.
We also nabbed drop cloths, rollers, Frog Tape and Purdy brushes.
Everything went on the counter along with our marked chips...
...and into the very capable hands of our new best friend Jorge, who inspected our paint base choices and ran back and forth like a madman explaining what would be better for the job we had planned.
He explained viscosity to us...
...the different properties of each blend as opposed to the saturation of color we'd selected...
...and in the end made us feel pretty confident about the kaleidoscope that he was about to mix.
It's Hot Mess Time, people. Ready?
We sealed everything up, took it home...
 
 ...and we were met with delight at the exciting prospect of splashing two rooms and a hallway with brilliant fresh color! Elation! Exuberance!

Look, bub, I financed your current movie. Wipe that scowl off and start taping.

Whooo! Lovin' those green swatches (maybe because I just painted my bathroom green).
