After I put a load of clothes in to wash I went downstairs to work on the painted room. I finished pulling off the rest of the tape; I pulled some Thursday and Friday afternoon. Even though we tapes, paint still managed to seep underneath along the crown molding and chair rail. This is the first time I have painted a house with cherry molding. It’s a bear to tape the way it’s cut and a pain to get paint off. And, being a messy painter that I am, I still managed to get paint where there was no tape. I worked about an hour then came up to put the clothes in to dry and give some attention to Colin before going back down to work some more.
After lunch I used a small brush to touch up spots we missed, mostly along the chair rail and in a couple of corners. I put the switch and outlet covers back on and did a little more cleanup before calling it quits for the day. JoAnn is coming over this afternoon to hang out for awhile.
