I usually attack spray painting projects with gusto, embarking on painting them ASAP. I've even been known to spray paint at night with the backyard floodlights ablaze while the neighbors wonder if we've built our own mini-baseball field of dreams. But nope. It's just me with a face mask, spraying to my heart's content. Sometimes, there just aren't enough hours in a day, so I make due at night.
But this time, I wasn't very speedy. This project drug out, mostly because Matt and I have been sick. Unlike normal people who say, "Gosh, I'm sick, I think I'll go to the doctor" Matt and I decided to tough it out. Which resulted in our finally going to the doctor anyway, only to discover Matt has strep throat and I have a viral infection that makes me cough like a swine flu victim.
Long story short, these tables have existed, half done, for days. Until this morning. I got up super early, re-energized after two days of penicillin and tackled this project once and for all. I painted them tomato red to match the shutters in the dining area. Mabel wasn't impressed.
