Last night was spent putting another coat of Normandy Blue on the walls of the living room. I have the floor covers down the night before and all I needed to do for prep last night was tape around the various casings. Ava was all about being there in an overseeing capacity, asking many questions (often repeating some) about what I was doing and why I was doing what I was doing. She was chased out of the room when I started painting.
The coat of paint went up quickly and easily. Most of the walls just needed a quick second coat to fill in spots where I had put the paint on too thin on the first pass. The sections that had primer on them I went a bit heavier on. Happily, I had bought the second gallon of the color and was able to finish the room with plenty of paint left. Tonight, I plan on getting a start on painting the casings. That should go pretty quickly.
As of now (not including my plans for tonight), I have the following left to do on the room:
- Prime Windows
- Paint Windows, Window Muntins, Casings, Baseboards and Ceiling Beams
- Paint Ceiling
- Install, Prime and Paint molding around ceiling
- Install, Prime and Paint molding around heating elements and fireplace
- Clean, Sand and Seal Floor
