I know I have said this multiple times in the past, but I hate painting. I don’t mind stain so much, but for some reason I hate painting. Also, I think that painting this was worse just knowing that this big purple cabinet is going into my bedroom.
Anyway, putting three coats of paint on all of this took all day of a very long day. I probably could have done it without taking all day, but in between coats on different parts, I found something (anything) to do as an excuse not to get right back to painting. I emptied garbage, sharpened pencils, and even took one of the scroll saws apart to oil the bearings on it today. I did whatever I could just to keep away from painting as much as I could. I finally got the base color on everything though.

That type of painting isn’t as much fun, William. I like the detail stuff myself. I feel your pain! :)
