Friends And Family

Thanks to our friends and family members, this project is rapidly drawing to a close. This past Saturday we had a "Painting Party". Charlie's guys did an excellent job preparing the walls, so we had a great canvas to work with. Morrow, Zinger & his wife Steph, and TerryO put primer to wall, while the Czenanski's took our two oldest off of our hands for the day. TGL (our 7 month old) was tag teamed all day, in the morning by Princess Christine and in the afternoon by TerryO's wife Angie.



Mrs. Zinger:


We started out with two 5 gallon buckets of VALSPAR primer (good stuff) from Lowes, but we ran out and I had to run to Home Depot for more Primer. I got the Glidden Drywall Primer and it was lousy. Take a look at this picture.

Looks like a monochromatic Rothko, doesn't it? Anyhoo...The Valspar had good coverage and the walls are definitely a uniform white color, so I won't be using this Glidden ever again.

I applied the a white latex ceiling paint to most of the new construction, I ran out on Tuesday and picked up another gallon today. My brother-in-law, James showed up with Miss Pattie to help put the paint on the walls of the bathrooms and the laundry room.
