Good Morning All

Zero degrees here today. Noah and I have a dinner date planned for tonight with his Dad and sister but I have a feeling it just might be canceled.

Missy I watched a couple video's on sponge painting. Do you need a glaze? What kind of paint do you use? Just regular? One room is eggshell and the other a semi gloss.

Maybe this weekend or next week I'll start. The foyer is already white. I'm thinking of sponging on either grey, tan or sage. What do you think?

The one bathroom is blue so I just buy paint in a blue that's a couple shades lighter?

<quoted text>Girl this is something we need to discuss. I never did it before, do you blot the etire wall of just every so often? It might blend the two different blues I have on the walls in together. So I would just buy a can of a lighter blue? Even if it comes out like ass it won't look much worse than what I have going on right now. Besides I can always repaint. If this blue doesn't work then I'm done with blues.
Good Morning, Liz and Missyfit,
It's freezing cold here and we have snow. Thank goodness for automatic start on my car. It is brutal outside.
Liz, when I sponge painted I did a dark color then I got like 3 shades of lighter color and I sponged from dark to light. Get you a board and practice on it. It helps to know how your wall will end up looking when it is finished.

Grey or sage would be pretty. I have never sponge painted on white.It has always been a dark color that I lightened up with the sponge painting.

<quoted text>Welcome back. Hope you're enjoying your new year.
At this point I'm not finding her posts funny at all, she's crossed the line and is downright scary. I never gave her a open invitation to stalk my son, my other kids, myself or family members. Any time now I expect her deranged ass to be sitting outside my house monitoring the comings and goings. It's downright creepy.
Then she accuses me of stalking her. Yeah, like I'm interested in locating some crazy person who goes on and on about agendas and conspiracies . Just the type I want to hang with and have a tea party with.
Does this mean you and your "FRIEND" has decided to leave her alone? Some things will never change .

Missy sorry to keep hounding you but I just need one of those sea sponges and then blot on the paint? Let it dry and that's it? I'll start with the downstairs bathroom. I'm thinking it can't look any worse than it already does.

So cold out outside. I'm trying to talk myself into going grocery shopping but don't feel like going out.

Let me make this perfectly clear. What it means is if she doesn't stop stalking my family and posting personal information that was never made public then I'll take legal action against her.

It's 4 degrees here. It's almost painful to walk outside.. When I did the sponge painting I paintes a dark color then used a lighter shade and just dipped the sponge in it and lightly touched the sponge to the wall. When it dried I used another color that was lighter and did the same thing untill it looked the way I wanted it to. It's best to get a board or a big piece of card board and test it to see what color it will end up before putting it on a wall.
Have fun grocery shopping. I need to go but it's not gonna happen in this cold.

Still freezing here. I don't think there's much snow in our forecast but I just read where the people from the weather channel are back in Buffalo again. Sounds like they're going to get another storm.

Missy I talked myself out of going to the store yesterday but this weekend I'm going to try to go to Home Depot ( they probably miss me there). Here's my last questions about the paint ( hopefully). It's a small bathroom that I'm going to try this on. The walls are already blue , one wall is slightly a different blue than the others but I'm thinking this sponge painting will blend it all in together. Eggshell is already on the walls. Do I buy eggshell or a different kind of paint? Do I have to buy quarts or can I buy a smaller size? Quarts seem too big but then again I can always sponge the garage with the extra paint.
In fact if I get the paint this weekend I just might start sponging Sunday.

Good Morning,

I would probably buy a quart. Make sure you get a lighter color blue. If you put a real light color on a dark color it will look more like the light color. Make sure you lift your sponge each time you dab the wall or it will streak. I always do it on a board before I put it on the wall. If you still have some paint from when you first painted the bathroom I would practice on a board. That way if you don't like the way it looks you can get a different color blue. Also if you have semi gloss paint on the wall then make sure you are sponging with the same kind of paint.

Hello ladies. Liz good luck with the painting. It' been years but I've done the sponge thing. Back in the early 90s I also did the feather dusting. Of course that is not popular now. I wonder if home depot has a picture of what the sponge painting looks like?? If not I think I'd just google it and see if you like it. How ever it goes, good luck.

Brrrr it's freezing outside. You all stay warm now.:)

Oh and as far as those bad judge marks go, I never pay any attention to them. The more you acknowledge them the worse it gets. Ok now have a great day. :)

Good Morning All

Yesterday I was out shopping most of the day. Finally stopped at Home Depot and got the paint for the bathroom. I'm going to tackle the job today. Kind of scared how this will come out. I swear if this is a bust I'm just going to buy some tan paint and be done with it.

It's suppose to be 20 degrees today so my boy's are going snowboarding. I'm sure on the side of the mountain it will feel more like -20 degrees.

Besides painting and catching up on some chores my daughter is coming over later for dinner and I'm going to try a new shrimp scampi recipe on her.

Anyone else have weekend plans?

Missy.......... I'm no longer speaking to you. When you see my avatar you'll know why.

Although my sponging did give the kids a good laugh.

PS..........I'll be back at Home Depot soon for Regular paint and a ROLLER

Goodness, what did you do? I told you to practice on a board first.. Who ever sponged that did not sponge it right. It looks all smeared on. Maybe you should just go get some tan paint and cover it all up. Lol If I were closer I would come over and help you out.
I have been on the go all weekend. Just got home and everyone is yelling what's for dinner. Now I wasn't gonna cook this late so they are all having Pizza and hot wings.
