The Gray Bucket of Doom

The previous owners left behind a 5 gallon bucket of the aforementioned white paint from my last post (here if you missed it) that covers EVERY SINGLE SQUARE INCH of our new home’s interior.   I need to repaint most of the baseboard trim and it is a basic white semi-gloss, so I was hoping to salvage it. I have been putting off opening the bucket for weeks now because I was afraid to see what was inside.


You just never know what you are going to get in this kind of situation.  It has been sitting out in the garage for who knows how long.  Crossing my fingers that it is still good…


Oof.  The smell!  Good gawd.  Moldy and putrid.  I guess that answers that!  It’s a good thing Sherwin-Williams is having a 40% off sale this weekend.  I guess I’ll be adding trim paint to my list. 😛
