Here’s what I spent last weekend and the first part of this evening doing. Painting the ceiling white. Because of the texture of the tin, it had to be painted by brush, and painting it gloss white over the white primer wasn’t the most exciting thing. It was kind of like painting a million golf balls white. Friday, the crew came in and sprayed almost everything with oil primer. They didn’t bring any ventilation with them and there isn’t much natural ventilation in the building so it stunk pretty bad. Other occupants of the building had to leave or close shop, and it even stunk up Main Street. How they managed to do that and still do a lousy job of actually getting any primer on the ceiling I’m not sure. Even on Saturday and Sunday after running fans all day, I could only work a few hours at a time. But finally the ceiling is done, and the next step is to get the floor in the gallery refinished and install the vinyl in the studio.
