The surprise is that I decided to paint the upstairs guest bathroom while she was gone. I got tired of looking at the old and moldy paint, so I went down to Lowe's, bought a bunch of painting supplies, picked a color and went at it. Most of the work was done in one afternoon, and I spent a little time the next couple of evenings cleaning up.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take any "before" pictures -- but here's a few that I did take!
- Use an edger instead of tape in the future. The tape is just a pain.
- If you must use tape, take it off immediately after you're done with the first coat. Don't wait until after the next day's touch ups, because it will peel paint off the walls.
- Take the medicine cabinet out of the wall first, so you don't have to do it after you realize you couldn't get to the spot behind the far side which is visible in the mirror...
