This House Will Make You Paint

Row came up with the title for the blog post all on his own. He thought that the play on words paint/faint was quite humorous, and I have to agree. Today, was centered on cleaning, painting, and rekeying the locks. The List continuous to ebb and flow with items being scratched off, and more added. 

Row really wanted to help, so with a little guidance, and canvas on the floor, he took to rolling the paint onto the ceiling. While I've been trying to get the house ready, having Row there just to hang out, and to occasionally help, has been nice. I will endorse this little product...

Shur-Line Edger is faster than putting up frog tape, and the lines come out pretty good, but you still have to go at a slow steady pace. This five dollar gadget is well worth the money in time (and frustration) saved.
