Worst is over

Last night I finished scraping the old chalk paint off the ceiling and painted it with a primer that sticks all the dust together and stops the new paint falling down.

It is horrid stuff, it has the viscosity of water so it goes all over you and the room and is no doubt full of nasty chemicals that you get coated in and inhale.

Next step is filling the holes, washing down the walls and then get on with the painting. I suspect that it will take three coats, but there is still a little optimism hidden within me hoping that 2 will be enough.

    Two will do it - viscous paint.
    Well done.
