Have you ever been just about to fall asleep, and suddenly had that "uh oh" feeling when you realized you forgot something? It happened to me last night--and it made me jump out of bed and run down to the garage at midnight!
You see, I haven't painted anything since I was getting ready for Lucketts, and I planned to get started on a project this weekend. I found a great oak coffee table on Craigslist that I'm going to paint for my living room redo. But just as I was dozing off I remembered my paint brushes: I had left them wrapped in plastic the night before we set up for Lucketts, meaning to clean them the next day. And you guessed it--I totally forgot, and they've been sitting there ever since. It's been two months! Six brushes (I was working on multiple projects at the same time), four of them my good Purdy brushes. Most of them hard as rocks.
As embarrassing as it is to admit what a ditz I am, I'm even more ashamed to tell you that it's not the first time I've forgotten about a brush! When it's happened to me before I've thrown the brush away. But I'd hate to toss all of these--for one thing, they're not exactly cheap!
So I'm wondering if any of you have a suggestion. Is there anything I can do? Can they be saved, or am I going to have to take the walk of shame down the paint brush aisle at Home Depot? I was using chalk paint if that makes any difference.
Any ideas? I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
