Sky painted

I sprayed the back drop walls a nice blue that I selected. The person at the counter said I would probably only need half a gallon but I thought that was not going to be enough so I bought a whole gallon of a color that Behr calls 550B-5 Windjammer.

I have a paint sprayer so I spent the whole day covering stuff in the area with tarps and fastening masking boards on the sides to prevent over-spray. I started painting at 6:20 PM and within about 40 minutes I had used up the whole gallon of paint. This is mostly because I also decided to spray as much of the ceiling as possible too.
