The good thing about picking out the weekend that I did was Martha Stewart paint was on sale at Home Depot for $13 a gallon!
Yesterday I tackled priming the ceiling and one coat of ceiling paint. I think it was enough. Then I put a coat on the walls but it's going to need another, boo! My Dad said it didn't need primer and the guy at Home Depot suggested a particular roller so I only needed one coat. I'm not sure who was right.
Next up, putting the painters tape on the walls for the stripes and probably another coat on the walls.
