I checked the second coat of wall paint today and it looks fantastic. It was pretty damp in there yesterday (it was raining and we had a window open) and when we were done, we realized to our dismay that some of the paint seemed to be bubbling up in the corner. OH NO. But today it is nice and flat, so hopefully that was just the damp and it's fine now. Pres Man thought that's probably what it was, and we shut the window and turned on the house circulation fan and tada! Smooth.

Today we're going to paint the trim's 1st coat. I am not sure if it will be easy or backbreaking. Much less surface area. Much more detail and half of it is next to the floor.

It's not raining today, yet. We have rain in the forecast though.

I realized today that the color we painted the nursery is very similar to the color of the first alcoholic drink Pres Man ever made for me (a grasshopper. I guess that's kind of appropriate, in an inappropriate way. lol

As a reward for getting this room done, we have started watching A Game of Thrones. OMG what a letdown! Everyone said it was so awesome and it's just....mediocre. Maybe you have to be a big fan of the books to get the most out of it. However, I am enjoying Boromir, which means that soon I'm going to be sad.

Also, Peter Dinklage. He is pure awesomeness.

Anyway, Spring Break continues apace, sanding and painting and in general not "break"-y as much as it should have been. But we'll be done with the biggest parts of this project and then we can move on to the next one. Hopefully that one will keep to a better timeline. It would be a shame to work so hard to get a nursery ready and have it just sit there.
