i feel like I'll be painting til i see a blue moon. Its one of those things once you paint one room you have to keep going til the whole house is done. Problem is I used to be quicker and enjoy it this time around its plain work and i'd rather be quilting I know i'm probably repeating myself. I'm thankful though that i can express my thoughts here.
Quilting My Rainbow
You sound like my sister. When she bought her last home, she painted all the room, then two months in decided she didn't like it and painted them all other colors. When I have a paint job, I wait till she is able to come help me. She uses oil paint and a brush. Never a roller for her!!
thanks for replying i can't even imagine not using a roller I'd work even slower.
The funny thing about all this painting is I recently told sil that i'd rather move than paint again. Well it still holds i'd rather move .
trying to repair stress fractures. not adjusting to my new furniture to good in withdrawal over not having my recliner it was replaced by loveseat. DH says he'd gladly get me a recliner if I take away my 8 seater country maple table... I'm so out of sorts between the painting mess and the new furniture which is modern, and my husband loves it. I picked out this furniture but I'm not acclimating well. comfort or the look I want for my home?
You all are so ambitious. We've lived in this house for over 12 years and I still have not painted. In our old house, we painted at least every other year. After moving here though, I decided I am never moving again. I must be the laziest person I know. Maybe I can get one of you to come paint my house for me. LOL Just joking.
Georgetown, CA I'd Rather Be Quilting
Thanks for replying! Its a long tedious process but every now and then Iget a few moments for myself. I'd like to know how my dh can even for a second say i don't work!
i'm beginning to warm up to new furniture. Living room is almost done ... I used to paint so much faster when I was younger. Right now I wish I lived in a one room house i'd be almost done. dreaming about quilting...
Where do you get the energy to do all that painting? My husband went on a painting binge last year. Maybe he'll finish the other rooms this winter.
really i have no energy, but the thought of doing all this years down the road seems even harder to accomplish . I've been thinking about tearing down a cork wall in sons room ... it really needs to be done , but that is going to slow my snails pace down even more. Main bath is finished I made drastic change in color from white to a periwinkle came out really nice!
with sons help took cork down yesterday planning on stripping the glue today, i'd rather be doing a strip quilt. posting my progress is really helping me to keep going forward. I really have to look on the bright side, at least when winter comes I'll just be quilting!
Had to use heat gun on glue it wouldn't come off with chemical stripper. Got it all off, but ended up burning my thumb in process. I have no feeling on one side of my thumb I'm debating on going to the doctor but i'd rather not with copays being so high.

Is it badly blistered?. I think with no feeling, you better get in to see someone. But then I am not a nurse, so don't listen to me. It's just what I would do. I had a very bad burn once, didn't seek medical attention, and now have a deep scar on my arm. I will pray for you.
Thanks for replying! I slowed my pace after burning thumb. Finally got wall all sanded and prepped for painting....Eventually i'll see dr. anyway.
