Busy busy bees! The past few weeks have been focused on getting walls primed & painted…although I rarely use oil-based anything, I read somewhere a primer with a bonding agent would work best; no idea if that’s true, but I decided to err on the side of caution
It’s still surprising to me how everything takes MUCH longer than you’d think – it must be all the nooks & crannies and the simple fact there’s very little use for a full size roller. Those little edge painters are great – I’m just a messy painter! We (that means my daughter) decided the ceiling should be painted after all…so I spent loads of time removing a/c vents, lights, etc. – why a fixture that weighs all of 2 ounces requires 8 screws is beyond me!
All in all I’m loving the colors – it’s a relaxing palette – just what I was looking for!
Walls/Ceiling: Valspar Lyndhurst Stone
I was hoping to finish all the painting before we started flooring, but the best I could do was prime & one full coat (walls & ceiling) throughout. Oh well, I will add it to the “after flooring” to-do list
The flooring is going great (check out the Flooring page for pics)…with the help of a great friend we’ve just about completed everything except the bedside area, by the shower/vanity & toilet area…. lots of tight spaces remaining, but hopefully we’ll finish with one more day. I need to head back to Lowes, but hoping to find a wood finished shoe moulding for the trim. I went with TrafficMaster Allure Vinyl Flooring (Barnwood) from Home Depot
