Something you should know about my son is he’s all about go go go. When inspiration hits, you have to really motor to keep up!
Being that I couldn’t ‘keep up’ at this very moment, I handed him all the tools and sandpaper, and he got to work.
I started to do the big fit but caught myself right away. It’s the smallest things that can have the biggest impact later if we pay attention. Now he’s educated!
Great job with the mudding too. We ‘found’ a major huge tub left over from the renos. So while it was busy drying on this wall, there was something else that needed attention.
The existing brick mural was slightly textured and needed HEAVY sanding. Not sure I’ll do a mural anytime soon with an interior wall because we couldn’t get it smooth no matter how hard we tried.
So we did something else instead.
We did it anyway. This textured area will become a concrete like wall. I had Cody apply a very thick primer all over the walls so you couldn’t notice the uneven paint from the bricks.
It was brushed on, then mottled up with a soft rag.
The primer is called Texture Surface Finish by Coastal Enterprises and is widely used in the sign industry for texturizing smooth surfaces. (Thanks, D!)

Looong way to go. I’d better help. I want my living room back one day soon. 🙂
“Wait! It’s not dry yet!”
And so the staging begins before it’s time.
Sound familiar? 🙂
