New House News: Primer Time
Hey everyone! So who else is absolutely exhausted? This whole trying to work and getting ready to move is seriously draining. If you're familiar with me and my blog & videos, you know I anchor a morning newscast- so I'm waking up at 1:30 a.m. and going to bed at around 6:30 pm. I haven't been quite so successful with that this week... I was painting well past my bedtime last night, so any amount of perkiness on the show this morning was coffee-induced! I don't see things changing anytime soon. Okay... that concludes the complaining section of this blog!
Yesterday Tyler and I got the entry way and the future home of Beauty Broadcast ready for paint! While you'd think primer would be the first step- you have to make sure the walls are smooth, clean, and that the borders are all taped up so you don't wind up with a messy paint job! So here you see Tyler doing some sanding... we have these open arches on either side of the entry way that let you peek into the next room. He's standing in the dining room, and the opposite side opens up to a hallway. Currently it's green, but we'll be priming it and painting it light yellow.Meet my new friend, Frog Tape! This is what I've been carefully putting on the borders so the paint will stay neat. What are all those lime green stripes in the background? Oh, that's Frog Tape baby!
I've gotten quite speedy with the frog tape! If you follow me on Twitter, you'll notice that even super tall Tyler needed a step stool to finish the job.
The picture below is the room that will become Beauty Broadcast! We've laid down some canvas since this is the first room we're going to paint! Ultimately, it's going to be a pretty berry-pink shade.
We had to buy so many tools! Buckets for paint, rollers, extenders, little paint brushes... and of course the paint and primer.
The primer goes on in sort of a periwinkle blue shade. I actually kind of like it! We had to make sure we got it in every nook and cranny. We were about a third of the way done in this picture, but now it's complete and ready to be pink!
Hope you enjoy my blog journal of the house progress! Today right after work I did some more frog taping and we ordered a leather sectional couch! Seems like there's something new to buy everyday! yikes :o Have a great day!
