I worked Friday night and Saturday and painted the first floor bathroom ceiling and I must say it looks great:
Now for those that are a little underwhelmed by this you must know that the old ceiling was quite bad and I resorted to drywalling over it. Here is a shot with a little bit of context:
We started on this bathroom way back last spring, but haven't done anything until the last two weeks. Longtime readers (all three of you) may even remember all this but here's a quick recap:
So two weeks ago I got 1x8 boards and Pete and I put them down for our baseboard
I spent the last week heat gunning the old paint off the casing for the door, cupboard, medicine cabinet and laundary chute. After that I painted the ceiling as noted above.
On Sunday Pete and I started installing pine wainscoting to cover the badly cracked fake tile plaster.
We worked together for about 2 hours and got the short laundary chute wall and the long wall with the medicine cabinet finished
After Pete left I started on the window wall and got it started. I probably could have finished it Sunday night but I went with my neighbor Mike downtown to hear Illinois senator Barak Obama speak at a Democratic rally.
I came home from work Monday night and finished the window wall
Then I went back and put 1/2 inch base shoe on top of the baseboard and put 3/4 inch quarter round at the bottom of the the base.
I then went down and brought up the primer so I could put that on the wall where the plumbing is, my thought is the sooner I can him back to install the toilet and sink.
I finished about midnight last night
