We decided to do some painting again this weekend. Last time we decided on a light blue colour for our living room walls. For a contrast, the wife chose a soft tan colour for some of the other walls that would go well with the blue. Of course, we had to give the kids something to do so I supervised as they help paint a portion of the wall. We figured, if they do the first coat we can have the second coat to, ah, "improve" on what they put on the first time.
At any rate, I guess because we had some experience doing the first few walls from before, we actually finished the painting quite quickly and with much less paint, which was a bit of surprise. Now we're just waiting for the paint to dry out but we're already wondering what to do with the extra paint we have left over.
