I have this shelf that I picked up for $3.99 and a bottle of spray paint that has been begging me to use it and get the shelf on the wall. I finally took the boys outside to play today and set up a painting station (a couple of 2x4s on the grass).
I sprayed the bottom of the shelf first and as I was ending the first (rather thick) coat, I was at the end of the can!
We were all pretty hot so we played in the hose while I waited for the shelf to dry. When I went back to the shelf there was a large section in the middle of it where the paint has been wiped away. This baffled me. And I wondered out loud, “How did the paint get wiped off?”
Max answered, “I don’t know.” So, I asked if he had sat on the shelf.
“No,” Max claimed.
Then I told him to turn around. The evidence was all over the seat of his swim trunks. Brown paint all over the back of them. I didn’t even try to wash it out. I know when I’m going to spend a lot of time on a fight and not win the battle.
It started to rain so I ran my shelf to shelter and convinced the boys they should go inside too.
