Here's a better picture of the tree after the first coat of paint. There'll be at least one more coat (you can see some areas aren't well covered yet). I have an evening photography gig tomorrow night so I probably won't get the second coat on until Wednesday. Thursday after the second coat has cured I'll decide if a third is in order. I'm not at all sure when I am going to be able to find a few things to hang on it yet, but hopefully I'll have it done by the weekend.
