Before one paints a lovely wall color, one must prime the wall. This one does the night before they board a plane for an island. At least that's what we do.
And once one returns from am amazing getaway and has dark brown cocoa skin, they immediately depart the plane and pick up the paint brush promptly to begin again. At least that's what we do.
Painting is a chore but must be done. It's the foundation on the canvas. When it is done, you breathe a sigh of fresh air.. literally and call it a day, or two, or three.
I swore that when we painted our last home of 3500 square feet, I was done. Never again. Lesson learned. Never say never.
