Step 3: Painting (continued)

Picture of Painting (continued)
Grab your red paint and give the post a good coat.  One coat is enough for this project.
*TIP:  Go out and buy a box of latex gloves.  They're 6 or 7 bucks for a box of a hundred.  I wear them whenever I paint or work with something I don't want to get all over my hands.  Saves you from all that hand scrubbing later.

Wait about an hour and then remove the tape.
