Default I Have to do Some Actual Painting...

So this should be interesting. I'm repainting a wall at work, which means revealing my terrible painting skills. I'll try to take some pictures if I think of it so ya'll can laugh at me. Between the shaking hands and just not being good at painting it should be pretty entertaining.

Using all store products to do it, so the upside is I get to review some stuff.

Will be Aura Eggshell on the walls (same color as before, so pretty easy).
Wooster Golden Glow for cutting in (already know I don't like the brush, but I've got it so might as well use it)
ProRoller Pro Contractor 3/8" cover
Frog Tape (because I have an open roll) for the taping.

Remember to roll up and down, not side to side, start by making a big W

Wall painting is difficult. There should be a helper to hold a candle in the corners.

Video's not happening, I'm not that keen to embarrass myself :P Pictures if you're lucky!

Edit: Putting it off until Monday anyways. Only a couple hours left today and I'm still trying not to cough up a lung.

Sarcasm, the only difficult part in painting something is to get started. To hold a candle means you can do it yourself, yet, you want someone to just be there for emotional support.
