It took forever just to get the first coat on:
Since this photo was taken I've painted a bunch more, but slowly coming to the realization that this will probably need 3 coats all together.
Normally this task would include taking out each shelf, painting each side, painting the closet and sliding the shelves back in. However, these shelves are painted in and the few shelves I could pry out are in there TIGHT! No wonder I procrastinated so long!
Now I have a non-binding agreement with myself to finish this by Friday and get on with my life.
I also keep telling myself that when this ends, I can finish sanding and staining the stairs, then I can easily paint the walls in this room, and when that's over I can work on some fun projects (!) like painting the dresser, refurbishing a couple of antique chairs, making curtains and buying rugs and lighting fixtures for all of our other rooms. Just trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
In other slightly related news, I've already started sanding down the gunk on the stairwell.
