The Kitchen Reno - part 5: "Surfaces"

I used Zinsser Bullseye 1-2-3 Primer on the ceiling. It has high adherence, seals porous drywall mud, and stops greasy stains from transferring through the new painted surfaces.

Two top coats of ceiling paint was used to guarantee a smooth flat finish. I used that fancy paint that starts pink and dries white. Its easier to see where you've already painted!

A coat of Zinsser Bullseye 1-2-3 was spot painted on all the drywall mudded areas, and the walls were all painted with one coat of ICI tinted primer.

Two top coats of Diamond Matt ICI paint were used to give a washable, flat finish. Flat paints hide minor wall imperfections, and the light colour will contrast our dark flooring and cabinets nicely (hopefully!!!)

Now that the "big dust" is gone, Marley is once again allowed in the kitchen area while i work!
