I'm going to be out of town next weekend and I really want to get this room done before I go. That means that I have to really focus on painting in the evenings but the tast of cutting in really requires some good lighting and I just didn't want to deal with lamps. Instead I got up at 7:30am and threw on my painting clothes and cut in around 75% of the ceiling before work using the daylight as my light source. Since that ceiling edge will show more flaws it needs to be done more slowly so doing it ahead of time meant that I could do the remainder of the cutting in quickly when I got home from work.
I came home at 5:30 and got to work and completed the cutting in all the way around and then rolled on the first coat of paint. Yeah me! I don't think I need to cut in again, just another coat of paint with the roller and it should be good to go.
That just leaves the woodwork to get painted. (groan)
