We started painting tonight. I had estimated 10 gallons to cover the walls and ceilings for 2 coats. The meant that we would need to get darn close to everything done for the first coat. Well we were a bit shy on that one. We rolled 5 gallons of Killz2 Sealer Primer tonight. I worked with the roller on an extension, doing the ceilings, and wall tops. The wife did the lower walls.
I thought I was excited to paint. Until I started painting and then I remembered I don’t really like painting anymore than drywall. In fact I was not excited to paint I was just really really glad to be done with the drywall. In painting I found some spots that need a bit more sanding or a slap of joint compound. So I am going to finish coat one on the wall and one half that need it, sand and fill a few gouges tomorrow. If I am feeling really adventurous. I am going to do some brush edging. I forgot how much work it is running a roller on the ceilings. My shoulders are killing me. I am really hoping we can spray the color coats. Much easier. Enjoy some photos of primed walls.
