A nice navy blue that would match our kitchen seemed like a good choice, and so I waited for a day with decent weather so I could spray. Today seemed like the day.

Then it started to rain. The forecast said there was a 20% chance, and I guess the roll of the dice was just so. I hope the paint job isn’t totally ruined.
