So we’ve achieved a sort of milestone, we began painting yesterday. This marks the turning point between the destructive and constructive parts of the project. The upstairs bedroom has reached a point where, with some more filling and wiping down, the undercoat can now start to be applied to the plaster. Needless to say this feels like a huge psychological step forward as we can now see some positive results even though there’s still much destruction to be done.

This is the test wall, filled, sanded and washed with liquid soap.

The end result may appear almost identical however we painting with watered down paint which is the recommended first step with unskimmed plaster. Next step is to fill and sand the rest of the room and continue painting.
