Studio Renovation Part Five: The Layers of Primer

I haven’t written in a while about working in my studio and there is a reason for, I took January, February and March off as it was to cold to go up there and I just wasn’t feeling it. Being pregnant and all I was sick a lot over the last couple of months, it started the week of Thanksgiving with a cold and that lasted until the middle of March not fun let me tell you.

Ok so I started working up in the studio only once a week on the 31 of March. In the last 3 weeks I have finished priming the walls and baseboards of the studio room, not just one coat of primer but whole coats and I’m thinking I might need a third coat of primer on one wall as the paper backing is just soaking it up.

Last week due to running out of primer I ran to Lowes and picked up another bucket of primer and 3 samples of potential colors. All three are varying shades of light green/blues to bring in a light color without being over powering. Today I painted my cardboard piece to paint my samples on next week when I go back I will also need a marker as the employee forgot to put the name on the bottom of each sample when printing out the labels.


I’m not sure if you can tell or not the difference between one and two coats of primer on the wall, once I was finished priming the whole room I could see a huge difference.





Sorry for the low quality pictures for some reason the camera on my phone is being wonky since my phone last updated.

I’m very excited to have this portion done and I am ready move on to the next part.
