Here's a shot of some of my supplies. The three cans of primer are just out of sight to the left of the photograph. The three cans you see are the "Flax" light golden yellow. I e-mailed a copy of this photo to good ol' Mom and entitled it "My Blue Period". One way or another, my life is approximating Picasso's right now! ;-)
After almost six hours of work, with a short lunch break, I have managed to apply a coat of white universal primer to all four walls of the future nursery. No photos of that, but I thought I'd post a couple of what the room used to look like before I got started today. A previous occupant of the room painted all four walls this mid-blue color.
As much as I liked applying a similar shade of blue to the facings of the recently finished 80-figure unit of fusiliers, it just doesn't work as an interior color. At least not when it covers all four walls. So, a primer was necessary to ensure good coverage when I apply the flaxen yellow tomorrow. Hopefully that job will go fairly quickly. What took lots of time today was trimming in the primer with a brush around all of the woodwork and along the baseboards and ceiling. I did the hard part first, and then applied everything else with a roller, which I think was all finished inside of two hours. Whew! It's time to put up my feet!!!
