(The title is to the tune of “Sailing, sailing, over the bounding main.”)
I got up early yesterday and finished priming the corners of the conservatory and bathroom with a brush.
Then, the snow fell, I painted two coats on the conservatory ceiling, both edging and rolling.
The “Hydrangea” blue paint on the white primer looked very dark.
But wet paint can be misleading so I finished the first coat, let it dry then painted another coat to fill in any holidays that remained from the first coat.
I love the finished blue ceiling so I was eager to see how the green walls would look with the blue.
My shoulders, knees, and neck were aching but I needed to get one wall painted so I could assess the results.
At first I wasn’t sure (and I won’t be totally sure until the furniture is moved back into the room) but I held up a pillow that matches the slipcovers on the loveseats and I think the paint and upholstery look good together.
Today we’ll finish the conservatory paint, then on to the conservatory bathroom.
