My mom and uncle Jeff are helping me paint my newly purchased home. And by helping, I mean they are painting all day while I’m at the office. (And, I’m super grateful!) I’m learning there are a lot of steps before you can press a paint roller to the wall: filling in holes from nails and molly bolts, sanding rough edges, taping woodwork and any edges where you don’t want paint (oh wow), sometimes adding a primer layer of Kilz, testing paint colors before committing to one, edging and finally painting the walls with two coats. This house is going to get quite a transformation.
