Ace Hardw*re gives away free quarts of their Clark and Kensington paint every month or so. I have 2 quarts, 2 different colors which I need to try to see if I like them so I can paint the living room. Paint is on sale this weekend so it's time for action. A quart will cover 100 sq. feet and I have 2 walls that qualify in my living room. I started taping the corners and ceiling lines so it will be a nice clean wall of paint in case I don't get back to the rest of the painting right away. What was I thinking though on this wall. I'm only a little over 5' tall and there is no way I can get near the ceiling line over the fireplace. I had the room professionally painted in 1996 and before that there was panelling on this wall. There is a piece of glass on the mantel so even if I wanted to get up on there I can't and the glass is a 2 person job to remove. I have put a call out to the family (left message) and haven't heard back yet.
On to plan B, the other wall. There was a bookcase with all of my quilting books on it in front of this wall so last night I moved all of the books over to this unit, 10' away, organizing as I did it and now this morning I will tape the corner and door frame and hopefully be painting by 10. I think I got my load bearing exercise moving all of those books. It is amazing how heavy they are.
