So yesterday the dark green wall was finished, windows washed and repaired--they had molted their little nylon rollers--and the blinds rehung.
Next is the rest
of the room. Now--we've tried and tried to like it, have applied
several coats in test spots...but no, this is just TOO minty, so this
light green is out.
I did however get to growl afresh at the
previous tenant's painting skills. The gaping hole on the left was
where they stuck double sided tape--that thick kind--to the wall and
then painted over it. Twice. When my sander hit it, it instantly
remelted and spread, making it necessary to attack the wall with a
Multiple other sander marks are where they just plain glopped on spackle or dripped paint in huge, runny, ohsothick streaks.
On this wall they switched things up a bit--see the double doors?
They painted them, then closed the doors while the paint was still wet for the love of God. TWICE. I found two different colors of stuck paint.
Who doesn't learn from the first time they have to pry the doors open with a resounding, tearing 'snap'?
still have to change the doorknobs, as these are original 1972 Butt
Ugly. After this I'll be down to the final wall, huzzah! It'll sure be
nice to get past all this and have an office to work out of.
