We decided to paint the inside of our new Pickleball Court at ACC. The kitchen area was accented with a light shade of green.
In order to save cost, we laid down a base coat using sand and 7 one gallon cans of old exterior house paint of different colors mixed with a 2.5 gals can of white primer to create a base coat.
We thought a one 5 gallon bucket of green paint would be enough to cover the 6 service boxes, but ended up a little short.
Sunny Jung was kind enough to make a Home Depot run and donated another 5 gallon bucket. Sunny, who was a former owner of a paint store in greenhaven was a great help in lending us his expertise.
After completing the inside area with the darker green, we used the remaining green to mixed it with 3 additional gal. of lighter color old house paint to create lighter shade accent color for the kitchen area.
The total cost of painting was approximately $250 not include lunch, time, painting equipment which everyone contribute from what they could scrounge in their garage.
