Prepping to Paint

It figures that I had just shut down my netbook when I realized I hadn’t posted yet today. Thank goodness for the WordPress iPhone app! This is going to be short and sweet because I still need to sand and maybe tape for painting tomorrow.

At the end of this post I’m including a couple of iPhone photos of what Mom and I have to deal with to paint my master bedroom. This room is on a bit of a tighter schedule than the rest because my mattress set is being delivered Wednesday, and we’d rather not work around it. Also, I really want to move my cats, so I want one room that’s mostly done I can close them in when necessary. Not that I’ve figured out yet where to put their litter box.

The first photo shows the curtains in the living room; there are smaller versions of the same thing in both bedrooms. The hardware necessary to keep these things up is quite firmly attached to the wall. It took Mom the better part of the afternoon to get it all out, while I dealt with the other problem, the wallpaper border that was up. It came down easily enough, but the room was painted cream after it went up, so there were ridges of paint I had to sand down (Mom figured out something easier after I had done two walls). I’m very glad that’s the only room with a border. The curtain hardware is more than enough to handle.

The second photo shows the rose pink paint that was under the border. I also enjoy how the curtains weren’t taken down when the cream paint was done, so there’s been extra pink paint hiding behind the valence for who knows how long.

    It might be they painted to sell the place, which is why they didn’t worry about behind the curtains. That’s pretty funny, though!
