Oooo the pretty colors




At long last, the place is starting to look as it should. Primer now covers just about all of the previous paint, and about half the restaurant has been painted. The various detail work will take quite a while, and involves a lot of taping. The windows take about 45 minutes to tape off, and look like some sort of deranged connect-4 game. I'm convinced there is a special circle of hell where bad painters go, where they continuously tape off rough edges with cheap tape that doesn't stick. Also, I finally had a use for my 25 foot extension roller handle; painting the two-story high ceilings in a particular alcove of the restaurant was a snap with it.
