    Ride THEN paint

    Maybe get out early for a couple hours, come back and get that roller busy. Could try to do a bit of the prep work tonight? Where there's a will there's a way.

    No doubt! Worst case scenario, I can go do a run, or road ride since my time is real limited. It's not my first choice, but by the time I get loaded up and make a trip the local trail system, it's at the least a 3 hour endeavor not including a shower. I actually do plan to get the room cleared this afternoon after work. The biggest problem that I get into is that when it comes to painting, I'm a stickler for perfection... so I paint slow.
    Trying to win hearts and minds, but willing to stomp them if necessary.

    Me too! I must say though: get some quality paint and do it once (might need two for a drastic color change) You could be out riding instead of putting on a second coat. I hadn't been a fan of S.W. Duration matte for a long time. I painted a bathroom with it today, put on the first coat not even trying, and could've called it good! I think they may have improved that product.

    Good info, mang! I'll look out for it when I go get the color mixed. The color change isn't too drastic so maybe I'll be able to wrap this shiz quicker and go let the trails beat me up by Sunday!

    Thanks J! It's at Sherwin Williams. Flows good, covers good, supposed to be easy to clean, but I haven't tried yet. It's about $58 a gallon, tho (sure beats two cheap gallons + doing two coats)

    Edit: Keep in mind that there are many variables: Preparation, tools you're using, technique, stopping halfway through to get a sandwich and a beer...

    Good luck with that Judy you deserve it. Especially with all the internet searching you've been doing lately to keep us all rolling on the floor with laughter. Keep up the good work.

    Tried it out, and it was awesome! It went fast enough that I was able to get a 44 mile road ride, and a 10 mile run before the weekend was over! The only bad thing to come out of all of this is that it went well enough that my wife wants me to paint our guest bathroom this weekend. Dammit.

    At least I won't be at my office!
