Unwhitening, Part One

Because I know you have all been on the edge of your seats since I said we would be painting the ceiling (even though we didn't; we did another layer of primer, instead), I give you the first colour coat in the Accordion Room.

Here we have Noel mixing the paint up. If anything is more interesting than watching paint dry (which is really fascinating!), it's watching somebody else mix paint. We have these nice little paint mixers that fit the quart cans perfectly. I recommend using a paint mixer attachment on a drill for mixing paint; stirring by hand sucks.

Making up a batch of blue paint

Then we were off! Noel went first, rolling on the blue paint, while I followed up doing the edges. The first coat needs to dry for four hours, so only one coat tonight (because we may be nuts, but staying up until 2am painting the ceiling is a bit too nutty).
