Recently we've had a few house updates. Both boys needed a room update.
Mica's always been the type that just has never cared if anything is updated. Reason...he knows it requires work. Can we say, "LAZY"? I think most kidadults would skip out on making things look better if they knew it required work.
Mica wanted a space theme that's graphic. We struggled because I pictured a galaxy, or star star wall. He wanted an exploding earth. Then I got him a starry bed spread. I'm thinking of getting him a starry blanket to cover his chair too.
Main Color: Red-Orange
Now that Travis and I basically have opposite working schedules, it was hard getting Mica's room done. We had most of Mica's room in our living room, for three weeks.
I taught Mica how to roll, so we had three people working on this project. You can tell he was oh so excited to start rolling. Ha!
A good way to get a home project going, is having the right tools to do it.
List of Products to Help With This Job:
- We had three gallons of paint: Navaho White, Red Orange, and Teal
- We mixed up two more colors with the three
- Paint Brushes
- Painter's Tape
- Paint with a base - We used Navaho White
- Tape with painter's tape - We free formed it
- Burnish the tape
- Roll base color on
- Use a brush to edge the colors
- Roll on the colors
- Take away the tape
- Fix up bleeding paint with a brush
Setting up the Wagner Smart Roller:
The Wagner Smart Roller came in pieces. Travis had the roller set up in minutes.
The roller was fairly easy to use. We picked to use the Wagner Smart Roller, for the biggest area of paint that we needed to cover.
We did feel like the paint got in the parts, and was a pain to clean. I think I'd want to use this, for a room that's all the same color.
How to Use:
The paint gets pumped up into the gigantic syringe AKA a fill tube.
What was the last room in your house, that you painted? What color did you paint it?
