it's not ok we're gonna do this in 5 shades of white, it's we get 5 3/4 gallons of white, pour em all in one bucket, hit em with a stirrer on a drill for a minute, and we just landed 4 gallons of white primer for free.

you do the same for other colors, and a pack of kids acrylic or tempra primary and secondaries will tweak a color that's close into what you want. for heavy saturations, yes, buy that, but it's really silly to buy white or offwhite primer if we don't need to.

does that wall really need sanding or is it ok with a sponging? it seems like it's already sanded once. sanding is gonna forever cover the shop with gypsum dust, and that's not happy.

I'm in for tomorrow, and I'll leave the sanding pole at home.
Although I don't remember seeing gypsum dust all over, it did appear to have been sanded somewhat already.
And it it looked to be in pretty good shape. Except for that big "head through the wall playin' ping-pong" hole.

If someone picks up free paint, try to get flat white. We don't want to be mixing in gloss, high gloss or satin.
Ideally, getting a bunch of left over primer and mixing will yield the best results.
I don't know where any county recycling centers are located, so hopefully someone else will be able to pick up the paint.

I will bring an 8' step ladder, drop cloth and painting tools for myself.

Since we're not doing much for prep work It should go somewhat quickly.
Anyone have anything else we could do while at the space?
If we get a materials list for the benches, I could stop by Menards this evening and bring them along so we have them for Wednesday.

So where on the wall is this going to go? I was thinking to have it directly across from the garage door. It's likely that once the weather warms up, we'll often have the door open, and a nice big mural will look good...

The other thing to consider is that we really haven't figured out yet what exactly will eventually be attached, against, or hanging in front of the wall and where. Maybe the mural can be done on a large framed canvas or whatever and be portable. Stefan might have another suggestion too.

Have we decided what time the painting party starts tomorrow?
I don't want to show up before the space is open.
