Some trim needing a clean, a prime, and final coat

Our sweet outdoor paint station

the final pieces

If you are on the lookout for a great paint bucket, cut the top off a laundry detergent or similar plastic jug. Easy to do and easy to hold.

Some things we've learned about painting (trim):
-Work in an area long enough for the trim pieces so you aren't banging it into the walls etc. Not that we've ever done that :) That's why outside is great.

-After painting, do a final check for drips by running fingers along the edges. This saves you on having to sand hard drips off and then re-prime and re-paint bits.

-Always work with a partner--this goes for any painting project--the time goes by faster, the work gets done faster, and it can actually be relaxing and fun, especially on beautiful spring night in Vermont.

Since it is staying lighter later now, after the kids bed time is becoming the most convenient time to get work done. Yesterday was also unseasonably warm here in Windsor (mid 80s) so we set our trim painting station up outside in the breeze. Painting 20 odd pieces of shoe moulding may not seem like such a big task but several hours later they were gleaming white and ready to be installed in all of the bathrooms today. We've got Southface construction back helping us with some of the final bits and pieces so there will be more progress shots here and there. The library is primed and ready for color so that should also be coming up in the next week.
