Thursday night (not really weekend): Painted my old kitchen. Second coat on walls.

Friday night: Continued painting my old kitchen. First coat on part above cabinets and above other side of counter.

Saturday (all day): Painted old bathroom. (Note: Painting bathroom with lots of edges and stuff to paint around takes 9 hours. And that's just one coat.) Had to paint without overhead light because fixture is failing and had to be taken down to paint underneath because base plate of new fixture is smaller. In bathroom were me, stepstool, ladder, two lights, paint tray, and my dad. Bathroom is not particularly large. I am wearing almost as much paint as the bathroom is. (I dumped the paint cup on my foot at one point.) Kathy finished trim in dining room as well.

Sunday (much of day): Despite upset stomach, finished up second coat on kitchen. Kitchen is DONE!!!!! I took a couple of pictures -- see the Flickr bar on the side. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. The color reminds me a lot of the color of the kitchen at my Aunt Dolores and Uncle Mike's house when I was a kid. Didn't feel well enough to start on second coat in bathroom.

I'm so excited about the kitchen color. I love bright, warm colors in the kitchen, especially next to white cabinets and trim.

And making sure the kitchen is freshly painted in something other that "antique white" for renters is awesome.
