And then there was primer...

Believe it or not - the walls and ceiling are primed!!!

I'm not as happy with the way the ceiling turned out so another coat is in order. There are also some spots that need to be touched up.

So, let's get right to what you all want - PICTURES!!

Some of the areas are a bit wet at the time the pics were taken so that's why there are some 'patchy' spots.

This is the door area leading to the back porch.

Before any of you get excited thinking I've splashed paint on the wood work, it is all covered by this funky painter's tape I found. So, there is no paint on the woodwork.

I can not believe how bright it is in the kitchen now!!

The wall that the sconces will be on, between the back door and the foyer door.

Doorway leading into the foyer.

You can also see the chimney chase, but the BIG deal is that the plastic baffle doors are gone!!


The spot above the doors leading to the powder room and the basement.

You can really see that funky tape in this pic.

The corner area above the sink and stove.

If you remember, there use to be a vent above the two windows on the left side.

The corner on the opposite side of the sink area.

The back door is on the other side of the wall on the right.

Okay, this is a picture of the ceiling.

It is an area right between the wall the fridge is on and the built-in cabinet.

If you look close you will see blotches. Those blotches were not there (at least not noticeable) before the primer went on. I have no idea what has caused them, but I've applied two coats of primer and they are still showing up.

So, now that primer is up I might take my chances and dab some KILZ just to the spots and see what happens.

I'll keep you posted.

SWMBO was quite pleased with the results and noted how bright and fresh it looked in the kitchen now.

I am hoping that the next time I post you will be able to see pics of the woodwork being stained!!

Well, till next time...

You can put shellac over those stains and it will seal them.
Of course you are kicking yourself because you knew that!
