So, today I painted. Or more precisely I primed. I thought I would start with the bathroom. It is so incredibly small, surely that can be done in an afternoon, right? I figured I could do it quickly and see if I like the repainted look before committing to something bigger that requires window treatments getting removed and such. Well, here is what I have learned so far. The primer is not “one coat” and it doesn’t cover everything. The silicone sort of caulking in the corners are difficult to get the primer to stick to and the room took something like six coats. Maybe it’s just me or the wallpaper is extremely porous, or I don’t know what, but it was a job! I started this morning and had to quit because the light was fading and I don’t see well enough out there to know if it looks good any more. So, it’s on hold til tomorrow, but for now, here are some photos of the progress today.
