Sunday 10/23 – Painting

I’m typing with Ultra Pure White paint on my fingers. I know it will all wash/rub off, but I just haven’t quite gotten around to doing that yet. I asked Chris for one of his older shirts and that’s a little bit paint-y too. It feels good to see things with a coat of paint, though!

We have a coat of “ceiling white” on all the new ceilings – dining room, family room, and sewing room. This is just in time; the electricians come for the final time tomorrow and it’s nice to have the ceilings done before they put the last pieces of the light fixtures in.

Steve was, of course, paint boss, instructor, and master painter. He did the entire ceiling of the back room (12′ X 50′, sloped); Chris did the sewing room ceiling. Thomas and I did some painting where the brush was needed.

Mom sanded the windows in the family room and dining room; Thomas and I did some as well, particularly the higher parts. Three of the four double windows in the back section now have their first coat of primer/paint; they were pre-primed so they already look pretty good, but of course another coat will be needed. We will keep working on windows — maybe by next weekend all the windows in that section will have at least their first coat.

Now we need to clear both new areas — the hardwood floors will be going in tomorrow and nothing can be in the way!
