Like with any good paint job, Anna spent most of her time on the prep.
- PREP: She removed all carpet tacks, nails, etc; patched the holes with wood filler, and dug out all rotted areas of the floor and repaired with a 2-part epoxy consolidant; then she sanded; installed shoe moldings, and vacuumed!
- PRIMER: Anna applied two coats of primer with a roller followed by a shellac-based spray to knots, and holes.
- PAINT: Three coats of paint applied with a brush. She used Benjamin Moore's Floor & Patio paint.
Whew! What a job, but it certainly looks worth the effort! We've summarized Anna's work here, but you can get the full instructions from Door Sixteen. We can't wait to see this room completely finished. Anna's going to use ferm living's fir tree paper on one of the walls!
Thanks for sharing Anna! For all the reasons behind the paint job, and to see the rest of house, go to Door Sixteen.
