“It’s just a little paint…”

Screen Shot 2017-11-18 at 2.57.24 PMThis comment was made on one of the facebook posts. If you’ve ever painted a mural before (and I know that some of you on this list have – kudos!)  you know that this is an understatement! Here’s a partial supply list for this project:

  • Ladder
  • Projector
  • Bins
  • Paintbrushes
  • Paint tray and rollers
  • Water buckets
  • Cart
  • Painter’s tape
  • Gloves
  • Hairdryer
  • Chalk
  • Large fans
  • Dropcloths
  • Spackle
  • Paint
  • Paper Towels
  • Plastic wrap
  • Trash bags
  • QTips
  • Rags
  • Xacto knife
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape
  • Kleenex
  • Markers, pencils

In addition to the supply list, there’s also a tiny bit of coordination needed:

  • Socialize idea with friends and family to get feedback on project vision
  • Design and develop a proposal for WSDOT including multiple sketches for different walls
  • Ask close friends to review and give feedback on design and proposal content
  • Gain WSDOT management and leadership approvals
  • Create and launch Kickstarter campaign (ask close friends for video support and reward ideas)
  • Make backer rewards (see photo above!)
  • Meet with WSDOT to find time when ferry terminal is available (reduced foot traffic)
  • Work with local paint store to find the right paint (low VOCs) in the right quantities and the right colors
  • Coordinate with day job to get time off
  • Practice painting mural in basement to identify any process issues early on

It’s been a fabulous 3 months of collaboration and excitement. Thank you again for making this happen.
