The Sadness of Orange
Spray paint primer was a total no-go for me. I followed the directions on the can, together with the tips and tricks I had gleaned from the Internet, yet after three light coats and 2 cans, coverage was still poor and hazy. Back to the store for a can of Zinsser 1-2-3 primer, a paint tray, and new roller brush cover. MUCH better (and faster!). To the right you can see after the first coat of orange was applied. Unfortunately, this was in July when we were having SUPER hot weather, and the paint was drying so fast that I couldn't keep a leading wet edge and coverage was still a little uneven and streaky. Initially, I had planned to keep the top part of the permanent shelves white, but later decided to make them orange as well.
