Busy mother that I am, I am just now starting to decorate her room. I had a different plan about switching the girls rooms at first but Lydia had a different plan. She would only sleep on her tummy- so bassinettes were out. I was having panic attacks every night with worry about her not being on her back, and finally in the end just bought another crib of her own so there would be plenty of clear space- no bumpers and fans on at all times.
About 2 weeks after she was born, we moved around about every piece of furniture that we own to make it all work, and that was about as far as it got. BUT finally Lydia’s room is painted… she won’t remember the first 4 months of randomness… right? (Let’s be honest, I’m really not concerned even if she does, she is loved and wanted, that is what counts- not wall colors!)
Anywho, for this project, I got to try out Black and Decker’s Rapid Roller. It made super quick work of this project!! Thank Heaven!! Time savers are essential because with two girls under 2 (and running this blog) I really don’t have a lot of extra time.
Before most of the furniture moved to center of room:
Opening up the box. WOW!
Cutting in. So according to some pictures I have seen of this product, you might be able to avoid cutting in if you use painters tape, BUT I hate painters tape- I never use it. A good quality (like Purdy) angled 1 1/2 inch brush is all you need.
Justin felt like he should take a picture of me using it… yikes. I should start putting makeup on when I work on projects… and maybe brush my hair, maybe.
I had to show this image(below), so you can see how the head pivots in different ways. COOL feature!
It also had this cool stand, which reminds me of a bike… don’t know why I just mentioned that.
The color is off in this picture, it was 12:00 pm at night… and I really have poor camera skills!
The next day, I did a little decorative painting which I LOVE. I wasn’t quite sure if it would work but I am super happy with it. I will show you more pictures soon as I actually finish the room. And more of the process.
Paint color: Martha Stewart Lagoon MSL125
But for now…
Do you all need a new tool? ( I know how you feel!) Good, I am here to help-or rather Black and Decker is!
