I didn't have enough time for doing much today, so decided to paint one of the two pegboard panels in the shop white. The walls were originally white, but after putting the dark brown peg panels up, I've been squinting a lot more! John Sevenson's mention in the sander thread reminded me that painting them was a gonna-do that maybe ought to be done-done. So i found an old gallon can of off white buried in closet in the house with about a pint of thickened paint in it -- why we were saving that I don't know, but perfect opportunity to kill two birds with one stone! A little water and it loosened up, and I removed the tools, painted, put them back and we're half way there.
It does make a big difference in seeing things. Looking forward to doing the other side, and probably the galvanized metal ceiling, too.
I had kind of noticed the machining pics I took were brownish. Must have been reflected light from the pegboard. Wonder if they'll be brighter colors now?
