« Part 4: Building a Drawer & Assembly Part 5 of Doll Baby Crib Project series Part 6: Finished and Delivered »

I was reminded again this past week why it is better to have patience on these projects. The deadline is fast approaching for getting this project finished and in the mail to Texas. With that pressure, I decided that this past Friday would be a good day to try and get the first coat of paint on the crib. As most of the U.S is aware, we had a bad cold snap followed by wet and rainy weather here in the South. Not to be deterred, there was a brief respite in the weather Friday. Temps soared to 60 degrees and the rain stopped. So, out came the “paint table” and associated equipment and painting began. I was feeling pretty pleased with the outcome as I rolled the project back into the garage to dry and cleaned up the tools
Two hours later, on the way out of the garage, I see the effects of 95% humidity. Paint is “blotchy” and not covering evenly. It even almost looks as if there is “fish eye” on the project.
So, in the “do no more harm” thoughts, the project is now sitting in the garage waiting for a suitable day to paint.

It never works out when I try to rush these things.
