    the trials of painting.

    Just a little fun I have been having this week.

    My father and I have been painting my house so I can sell it in DEC. We put a first coat of paint on this wall.



    After the second coat was put on I noticed some bubbling in the paint. We tried to scrap the bubbles and hoped to just repaint to get it to look alright. Well it didn't. So I went to a bubble with a razor blade and this is what happened.




    The entire wall pealed off the old green paint under it!! Needless to say we had to repaint the wall.

    It turned out nice and this is some of the finished pics I took after the cainets were finished too.



    Still have some painting to go and hoping to get it finished tomorrow.

    Ha ha! Someone ELSE with the puke green 70s kitchen wall paint! I just painted over that myself with beige not a year ago!

    As far as difficulties go, have you got some Floetrol mixed in that paint? It'll go on a lot better and generally without bubbles if you add some.

    Just as a heads up, when paint bubbles like that, it's sometimes a sign that there is water underneath the wall and making it damp. Once it does that, paint will separate from the wall.

    I hate painting.

    I do happen to like color in rooms so I don't mind the green. "Neutrals" are so boring but that's my opinion.

    My breakfast room is tangerine orange and I love it. Goes with my 1950s art deco breakfast suit and all my other 50s items which are bright and colorful.

    But I do feel for ya on that peeling paint. That really sucks!

    My kitchen was that green color, the other walls "Goldenrod" or something, the fridge and stove were "sunburst yellow" (like an old Fender guitar; light in the center getting darker towards the edges) and my carpets were all neon-orange shag... Welcome to the groovy 70s (I think this condo went up in '73).
    I don't mind color, it's just that those colors together was eyeslaughter!
