You're just a shade

For those who haven't seen Inception, minor spoiler alert.

Inception is about people who can modify other people's dreams. One of the dream changers keeps unintentionally bringing his dead wife into the dreams. He tells her that he can't live the rest of his life in the dream world with his imagination of his wife:
I can't imagine you with all your complexity, all your perfection, all your imperfection. Look at you. You are just a shade of my real wife. You're the best I can do; but I'm sorry, you are just not good enough.

Quick painting tips

  • The answer to "have I put enough paint down?" is always "no."
  • You only have too much paint on your roller when it doesn't roll.
  • Either color match or do something different. It'll save you from putting too little paint down and having to do a second coat.
  • 3-4 people is perfect. Any more than that and a surface will get missed (if the old and new colors are close enough).
  • The answer to "did I put too much spackle down?" is always "yes".
