First of all you are spelling it wrong: the correct spelling is odour. Odor just doesn’t look right.
I’m in luck; the heat has broken (somewhat) so I will be able to paint with the windows open. Its not just an odour with paint, its toxic fumes that give you a headache. Its a sharp chemical smell that stays in your brain.
Its been 6 days preparing to paint my living room. I’m going out of my ever-loving, freaking mind. It took two days just to wash the walls. I just want to get this done.
The painting goes pretty fast compared to all the prep. I started painting yesterday. It was 3:00 by the time I finished taping and I was punchy, stumbling tired but I had to start painting even if it was just a little bit.
I was worried about having to keep my windows closed, circulating the fumes with my air conditioner.
Today and tomorrow I can paint with the windows open! That will really help with the odour.
