I am back at the house where I did those 2 ceilings, just before the Holidays. Remember this shot of a lone column on the wall?
Today I began the prep work to make it disappear. When I removed the gate, 2 very large holes were left, which required a lot of plastering. I primed the column and brushed on the base coat, avoiding the drying repair section. I will return tomorrow to see how the plaster has dried. I know it will need another layer or two before I can paint, but all looks very hopeful for a smooth blend. I am working up 2 ceiling designs. One for the Office and one for the Sun Room.
I am still having my issues with getting the text to flow as it should with this new layout. When/if you see it looking really terrible, that means I’ve given up for the day, but will try again! 😉
