plastering

Our foyer and den have been under construction for quite a while.  The reasons range between not being in the budget, to the arrival of new baby, to there is not enough hours in a day.  Well, I had the idea that between baby naps I could get a stab at it and little by little it would get done.  So, I decided to plaster.

My respect to plastering professionals has grown tremendously.  Plastering is hard!  It takes a lot of practice to get it right.  It is not just putting mud and taping; it is the sanding.  Oh the sanding!  I had to do a lot of that to get the walls smooth.  And just when I thought it was perfect and I primed the walls for painting it wasn’t.  I had to put more mud, do more sanding, and use a lamp for a closer look.

I got better!

My advise for you is take your time and use a light to look for those imperfections.  Trust me, they are there.
