Painting nursery/our room tonight. Chels :3 Florida 2017 posts
8th Dec '12

SO gets off work at 4 and I'm sure he'll want to sit and relax for a little while shower and what not, then once we go get all the rollers, brushes and tape everything off. (I'm already in the process of moving what I can out to kill time now) By the time we start, it'll be time for this parade, and we probably wont start until after like 6-break for parade then start up again after, which could be 8-9 I'm not sure. We'll finish tonight. Should I sleep on the couch with the fumes in our bedroom? Sorry I don't know why my questions have to be so long. Lol.

When you paint the rooms shut the door and put towels of the bottom of tge door. Use water base.

Make sure you open windows and put a fan in the room if you can. If the paint doesn't really have time to dry or it really smells like paint then I would.

Well ya, whether you're pregnant or not lol... might be hard to sleep in a room with wet paint though. You won't finish tonight though, you can't keep putting coats over wet paint, you have to let each coat dry.

It's the one coat stuff, my SO got. Idk I guess I've never really cared much about the smell, or had safe paints. I've always started off early. But we'll have SO's three year old tomorrow and we want to be done, and have the fumes at least mostly out before he gets here. I was just checking. I don't need primer or anything. And like I said it's the one coat stuff which is why I thought we'd finish tonight, I suppose I didn't think about the fact that it wouldn't be dry. Sorry pregnant brain, or just slow atm Idk... Guess it's a couch night for me :) It's been more comfy than the bed lately anyway.
