Completing all the painting in the laundry room involved one really annoying task: painting the door to Chris' office
I think you can guess why this task sucks: there are 15 lites. Yeahhh, not fun. And because this door is a really ugly brown/red color it involves 5 coats of paint to get the job done: 3 of primer and 2 color coats. Ugh.
Out came the primer and I got here and was reminded very quickly about why I had put this job off of some time
THAT took me almost 20 minutes. Yes, that's right. Those stupid muntins were a fucking bitch. I could have taped it off, but taping would have taken forever and the windows are super glossy and tape doesn't stick to them well. I could not worry about smearing paint all over the place and scrape it off later, but I did that on another 15 lite door we have and scrapping took fucking forever and was completely obnoxious, so I didn't want to do that again. I was pretty much shit out of luck for not making this project annoying. I decided to get out a craft brush for the small parts. I used a standard Purdy brush to get this done
And then a small craft brush for all the muntins
Then I spent 3 days painting on lots of layers of paint. Like I said before - 3 coats of primer and 2 color coats. My god it was so annoying. I just strapped Zoe into her carrier, turned on some music and hoped that Zoe didn't get as bored as I did and start crying. I sure as hell wanted to cry. But about 5 hours of my life later the door looks A LOT better.
Here's the before to remind you
And the after
I hated painting that damn door, but it sure looks pretty now. No more gross brown, hooray! Now it just needs a pretty knob. And I could do without those yellow panes of glass, but some things are just better left alone.
