Finishing the Bed
Everyone needs a Buddy - and this little guy is mine. Got him from a friend who could no longer care for him, so sort of a 'rescue' dog. He fit right in and likes to follow me everywhere.
here for first post on this topic).
Cost so far: just the $5.00 for the Oak head and foot board. The blue paint I used was $5.00 for the gallon and I have already used that same paint for other projects. The red was left over from another project.
Even though it was latex paint the fumes really made me feel sick. I did the blue painting in my bedroom (should have used the garage). New rule for me: paint outside, let it dry and THEN put the item into the house. I ran an AirSource, a fan, opened the window and had a nap to see if that would make me feel better. Left the window cracked and the AirSource running all night and that helped. I think the years of carpentry and exposure to air borne toxins on the job have made my lungs more sensitive to any fumes. Sleep did help.
