Painting at Christmas

I had planned to do some work on the house when I was back in Ottawa at Christmas, but I changed my plans on what I was going to do when I got there.

The garage had been framed in and the mudroom was constructed. So it was ready for paint. There were a few nail pops on the wall facing the garage from the construction which needed repair. This was alright, however, since Freda wanted to paint that wall a different colour. I took this photo after I did the nail pop patching, and primed the patches as well as priming the mudroom.

I took this photo when I was halfway through painting the first coat. I took this photo so you can tell the difference in colour. The brown is a nice warm colour and it really looks amazing. Freda did an awesome job of colour selection.

I took this photo after I had completed the two colour coats on the dining room wall, and had started to paint the colour coat in the mudroom. It's a nice, light, warm colour, but looks dark relative to the primer, which is bright white of course....

This is the photo after all the painting was all finished, although there is still some stuff to clean up in the mudroom.

Finally I was able to install the handles on the closet by the front door. I think it looks quite sharp.
