Good morning! Well I got out of bed this morning and it felt like upstate NY nice a crisp so I went for a RUN! Now for those of you that don’t know me you think “good for you” …if you know me personally you are saying “it’s about time slacker!”. I normally consider myself a pretty avid runner. I got my weim puppy specifically as a running buddy and I’ve trained for at least 4 marathons but only run 2 due to injuries in the later stages of my training.
Normally on a Saturday at 6am in the summer I am getting up and having coffee before I start my long run with the DC Road Runner group by the Iwo Memorial. Needless to say for many reason I have become a major slacker over the past 6 months. I’m hoping today is the start of be getting back to being a “runner” again.
Rai my running buddy a 6 year old Weim that has run up to 20 miles with me when training!
So I was just talking to someone the other day at the shop and I think one of the main things I can pass along to people if they are looking to do this either for themselves or as a little business is you don’t need all the fancy equipment. When I started I ended up buying a large paint sprayer thinking it would be better/faster. It is in some ways BUT it’s messy and a pain to change the paint color so if you are goin with an all white theme then go for it! But for me I found out I prefer to hand paint then I can be more creative with the colors.
As far as the sander goes…I did buy an electric sander and it wasn’t that expensive. If I need to sand a large table or something before painting it is helpful but for my distressing I actually pefer to do that by hand as well. It’s part of the creative process for me:-)
