Paint Till You Drop

No pictures.  No evidence.  Just my word.

I finished work on Friday and went to Okotoks with Sean and James to my Aunt Carla's new house.  She just bought a music school/house there and needed help with painting the studio.  Off we went.

Sean and I like painting and we took James along for some "work experience".  We like to hit the ground running and run we did.  We arrived around 8pm.  We ate Chinese food.  We started filling holes in walls and taping the rooms until 10:30. When Carla and Ken went home.  Sean and I decided we needed to start the first coat so we did and finished at 3am.  We slept until 7:30am and by 8am we were painting again.

By the time 5pm arrived, we finished the second coat and touch ups in the studio, a bathroom, first coats on the two upstairs bedrooms, and 7 doors and two closet doors.

The studio went from a red orange to a happy corn husk yellow.  The doors are now white.  There were 6 of us painting on Saturday.  All that is left now is to paint the mouldings white and re-hang the doors, which Carla and Ken will take care of.

Major transformation.

We returned home exhausted, but we had great fun getting there. Now back to the work around our own house.

This is going to be a great music school.  Okotoks is lucky to get such a talented lady!!
