Yuck! My Least Favorite Chore.

I HATE PAINTING!

No ifs, and, or buts about it, painting is my least favorite chore. However I'd rather "man-up" then pay an outrageous amount for such a simple task.

The new office space I just leased this week is/was in desperate need of paint so Tina, Timmothy, and I put on our worst clothes and headed over for an initial assault on the old plaster and lathe walls. Here is the before picture. The after picture may have to wait until Monday.

Old paintThe color you see is much more putrid in person and no, I did not remove the mop boards... but I will be putting some in. Tina, Timmothy and I painted like some of the most famous painters of all time...
