Bright and early Thursday morning I got to work taking everything out of the laundry room in preparation for the new stuff. If you have ever moved a washing machine, you are familiar with the science experiment/landfill that takes root beneath a washer, even in the cleanest of homes.
I figured that since everything was out, I might as well paint. After all, how long can it take to paint a small laundry room?
Trick question, the answer is too damn long.
The first thing you have to know is that I hate to paint. Some people loved painting, but not me. Painting is a job that I usually happily pay others to do.
I told the paint person at the hardware store that I wanted the best paint available, cost is no object. I just want to paint it in one coat.
We all know the proverbial great lies; the check is in the mail, I'll respect you in the morning. Add this third one, "This paint will cover in one coat".
One might think covering white walls with green would be a snap. When I went back for my second gallon, the paint person told me that my combination, green over white, is one of the few that is hard to cover. And she said it with a straight face.
