31 Days to Prepare for Baby, Day 3- Done Painting!

We got home this afternoon and I was excited to get painting!
Really, I was getting really anxious about the final result & I wanted to be finished!
It took 20 minutes to put the second coat on.
The Big One decided he was over painting and played 'inja turtles instead.

After 2nd coat....DRY FASTER!

Since I already had the outlet cover off,
I added a little history for someone to discover.

Hopefully he doesn't come sooner!
And he sure as hell better not come later!!!!

After a couple hours, I started pulling off tape...just to check...
and it was all dry!

The Big One helped me pull tape off,
which he thought was super cool.

Final result-


Amazing!  I touched up a few tiny places, it turned out great.
I was worried because the wall is textured,
but the tape provided a 100% seal.

Total cost:

Better Homes & Gardens Quart of Paint $8.97
Tape $3.97
Paint brush $3.97


Obviously I can use the brush again.  I still have half a roll of tape and 1/4 a quart of paint.

Total time start to finish: About 2 1/2 hours!
