Did you try to haggle after the guy was an hour late?

I didn't get there until about 10 minutes before him so it was fine.

I need to label my drawers because there are so many drawers that it'll take a while to remember where I put everything. Still have a couple empty drawers for new tools!

I've been wanting to do that for years with my label maker, but I eventually learned where everything was. You have more little drawers though.

Building a set of cornhole boards as a side project to the bar. Got them mostly put together yesterday but finished the legs tonight. Now I have to decide how to paint them. So far I've only bought some primer and I'll hopefully get them primed this week.

The trick is to tape it off, then paint over the tape with the base color (white) so that the bleed through will be the right color and blocks the other color from bleeding through.

Woah, my brain just broke. Who taught you that?!

So paint it all white. Put tape down. Paint over tape white again, and then paint the colors once the white dries? Other colors won't bleed through because white sealed the tape?

Very slick. I'm too impatient to add an extra phase of painting/drying tho.
