CALL TO TCMs: We need to do a painting party to get the space prepped for Minne-faire and starting on the mural. Who can help me paint next weekend (24th)
figure 400 sq ft per gallon. 5 gallons should be enough.
Do we want to prime and white cover the wall before the Mural?
Did you think about the Collage idea?
I can help, but I've also asked if people are available on Monday. I have the day off. Certainly the painting doesn't have to be done on Monday, but I'd like others to join me and get some other things done.
Jude, for the collage idea, were you thinking about large posters or whatnot envisioning maker equipment and activities? I kind of like that, if we could do some very large canvas pieces, but we also were going to do one or more projectors with slide shows and videos.
I have Monday off as well and would be willing to help with whatever.
If we paint, I have a sanding pole and sanding screens for tidying up the drywall.
Also have a roller with a couple of new 3/8" covers, a bucket with a screen grid, brush and an 8 foot step ladder.
If Monday is a go, what time are people showing up?
Also. I stopped by Menards today and bought some tools for the space.
16' tape measure, hammer and small frame square to help with the benches.
Also found 5 pounds each of 2-1/2" and 1-5/8" drywall screws. And #2 phillips bits for the drills.
