  First Coat Done!

I painted the laundry room ceiling "Morning Glory" blue in 45 minutes. I worked quickly since I was using a new kind of paint, and the guy at the counter warned me that it dries very quickly and I'd have to work fast to avoid cutting in over partially-dried paint. I think I got a little paint pick-up glitches in the first corner while I was getting used to the paint's properties, but after that everything was fine. I think I'll probably go with two coats to be safe, though. It's a bit dark up there since I'm just working with a utility light on an extension cord since the electrician is hooking everything up tomorrow. Which is why I'm painting tonight. It's much easier for me to knock out the ceiling paint now before the track lights get installed.
