Windows Almost Done

The painting is moving along at a snail’s pace, but moving, nonetheless. I try to squeeze in some painting each day, but sometimes it ends up being just about half an hour before I have to jet off and be somewhere or cook a meal. How does Martha Stewart do it? Or better yet, how does she expect the average working class stiff, her bread and butter, to do it?

As it stands, the dormer windows with their half-moon panes make it particularly challenging, but at least there is light at the end of the tunnel, sort of. The windows may be done (there are only two, after all), but there is still the issue of the door and baseboard trim. The baseboards will be tricky because the carpet goes up above the bottom, so I need to somehow pull the carpet down to paint it, but then hold the carpet down until the paint dries.

From the looks of it, I’m guessing they boards were painted before the carpet was installed, making it much easier. I think there is no getting around getting some paint on the carpet, but the bright side of this is that the carpet is awful and in need of replacing. A good time to paint, if ever there was one.

Until the next time, thanks for reading.
