It took about 30 cans of Rustoleum but we think it came out pretty cool.

Thanks!
It took about 30 hours of sanding and painting. We used 3 coats of Sand color as the base and let it dry in between coats. It only took about 4 hours to paint the other 4 colors over it.

Looks very nice. Not sure how long it's been since you did this, but have you noticed much difference in how or how much it heats up? I'm presuming it was white to begin with/

It was silver color originally. We insulated the ceiling and walls with two layers of 1/2" polyiso board and then 1/4" luan plywood so we haven't noticed any difference. We have a Fantastic vent installed as well. Since they are flat colors, I imagine it absorbs more heat but we are in West Texas and haven't noticed any difference. Our plans are to follow the seasons full time so we don't expect it to matter much.

It looks great. Don't have the bandwidth to watch video, but from the still image, nice job!

I would post more still images but it requires a http address so I'm not sure how to do that without a website.

Bad idea; ... would mean she could be looking over your shoulder judging what you've done wrong at ANY time and you would have no warning
