Today I sanded and painted the potting table. It looks way better. Then I did the next step on my gourd. First step was to grow it. Then dry it. Then I had to scrub the coating off of it after soaking it and dipping it in a clorox solution.
When it was dry again, I drew the pattern on it. Today I painted the negative spaces and outlined the positive spaces where they overlapped.
I also got my 10,000 fitbit steps in. That isn't as easy as it sounds since painting is pretty stationary.
