The first thing to finish is obviously where I left off in my “study-o.” During a brief break last week, I took some leftover paint from the master bath and started painting the remaining two walls in the office.
After finishing almost the entire first coat, it dawned on me that I was using a satin sheen in the bathroom, leaving the walls looking very odd in comparison to the other two in a flat navy. It was an oversight, but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I like the pale gray, but these two walls really should be brighter in comparison to the navy ones. Ultra white would match the trim, and make for a heck of an easy job (since I won’t have to concern myself with perfect lines along the ceiling or trim).
Lesson learned: when you know you’re this tired, maybe it’s time to put the paint brush down.
