No one ever taught me how to paint walls.
I learned how to paint completely by trial and error after my Pap died and I had to paint every wall and ceiling in his house with two coats of primer and two coats of paint.
My uncle handed me a five gallon bucket of primer, a five gallon bucket of paint, some rollers and left.
I called in reinforcements.
My friends and I painted Pap’s entire house over the course of a couple months all while wearing his XXL overalls that we duck taped in the back to hold them up on us.
That’s one of my favorite memories and a couple pairs of those overalls are safely tucked away now.
Needless to say, after all that painting and all the painting I’ve done in my other homes, I’ve learned pretty quickly how to paint walls – and how to do it in less time with less mess.
