How hard can it be to paint a dresser?
Um, as hard as finding oil-based paint, which apparently causes your brain to mold, and hence, isn't made much anymore. I learned this after inquiries at Home Depot and Lowes; and I bring this up because this is the kind of *difficulty* that has the tendency to derail me. Because for 3 brief minutes in the parking lot of Home Depot, I was paralyzed by the thought of having to drive to multiple paint stores to find what I was looking for--and that friends, has the makings of a 24-month painting project, because I know me, and I will lose interest at stop #3.
Instead, I just decided to slum it and use latex. I know this is a really THRILLING development, but I am trying to tell you that I got my first coat on this afternoon, and at this pace, I will have a new dresser by the end of the week, which defies all laws of the space/time continuum. Nothing extraordinary to report, except that this project seemed to attract a swarm of gnats, but I just painted right over them.
In the cruelest twist of fate EVER, I happened to notice that Sam's Club still had enormous bags of Cadbury mini eggs on SALE, for 50% off this week. My diet will officially commence, when I finish all 36 ounces, in approximately three days.
That's all I got tonight, friends--I'm BEYOND tired, and gearing up for Big J's eye doctor appointment tomorrow, which is ALWAYS a nightmare (link HERE for our last visit). Wish us luck, and a less than 2.5 hour visit, will you?
