Painting the Court

We decided to paint the inside of our new Pickleball Court at ACC.  Myself with the help of volunteers Jeannie Fong, Sunny and Carol Jung and Raymond Yu got together the weekend before our drop-in debut to paint the inside of the court.

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 2-1/2 gals of white primer to create a base coat. We decided that it would be nice to accent the kitchen with a lighter shade of green.

We thought that 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 mix it with 3 additional gals. of lighter color old house paint to create lighter shade accent color for the kitchen area.

The total cost of paint was approximately $250 not include lunch, time, painting equipment which everyone contributes from what they could scrounge in their garage.
