Despite sore necks and arms, we are painting again. Our goal now, I think, is to finish painting and decorating the stairwell and hallway before the beginning of June, which is when we started our painting projects last year. That's when the contractors left after the conversion of the old attic to living space.
It's frustrating to paint white on white. The walls are bare plaster, or they were yesterday. We put a coat of white primer on several of them. Today, I'll be up on the wooden stair putting a coat of white paint on the wall you see in the picture above.
That wall doesn't even look like it needs painting, right? But it does. Putting white paint on it will mean trying to be very methodical so that I don't miss any patches. But it's like the tree falling in the woods, right? If I miss a patch with the paint, and nobody sees it, have I really missed it?
