Blackhawks Room

New Year so new project for the house. We are finally painting a room. The enticer for Travis to finally agree to painting, a Blackhawks themed room. So 3 gallons of paint, 5 rolls of tape, and an assortment of rollers and brushes we were ready to start. Three walls for the three sweaters (jerseys) and the half wall to say Chicago Blackhawks. It took a day to get it all taped for round one. Half painted Saturday and the other half painted Sunday. My calculation for 2 coats of paint was wrong. Four coats of red and a run to Lowes for another quart the red later, the roller marks have finally disappeared. We of course had to stop for the Blackhawks vs. Redwings game. Then get to take the tape off.

The room looks amazing. I was nervous when the tape first came off, but when the Blackhawks Fathead Logo went up on the wall I knew it was going to be awesome. The sweaters hanging on the walls help and the black isn’t overpowering at all. All in all not a bad job for our first paint job. And Travis is more than pumped about his public man cave.

 Travis did this by hand.
