We’re currently painting the walls in our apartment and gosh, my arms hurt, my legs hurt, even my butt hurts! This whole painting business is definitely giving me a full body workout. Wait, does that mean that I am unfit? But I’ve been running at least twice a week for the past month, so how can that be??
This simple chic outfit though. You probably see me in this combo at least once a month, I would say. It’s so easy to throw it on and it looks great! The Gap top is really more of a weekend casual top but it has these frilly edges that makes it look a little more dressed up than it is so I could actually get away with wearing it as a work top!
Anyway, I thought painting was gonna be easy-peasy but as it turned out, there is actually so much to do. There are even more walls than we accounted for – you know those ones inside the cupboards, by the windows, the ceiling skirtings… ahhh!! Also, before you actually start painting, you need to scrub the walls down and prime it too. No one ever tell you about all these steps you need to take until it’s too late to back out ie. you’ve already bought the buckets of paint! Gah!
So far, we’ve primed all the walls except for the kitchen area. I’m hoping to get it done during the week and get some paint on some of the walls before my folks return to help on the weekend. So much work! Wish us luck, we definitely need it!
