Default Work in progress

Well, I'm a little excited to see a little progress in my ceiling. I plan on posting a lot of videos I've made along the way , to hopefully help others. This is just the start obviously, being that I'm going to trim everything out, including the joints and paths of stainless screws I used. Here's a couple pics.

Thank you. Im hoping it doesn't feel to cramped without white ceilings. I was wanting this look but I also know about colors creating the illusion of more depth, etc. Easy fix with paint if so though I guess. Then I'd trim it out in the same wood as on the walls, which is the same as on the ceiling at this time.

I think you’re okay without white ceiling, I used a dark blue which looks nice. I was able to provide some lightening to the interior by going white with some cabinetry and the refrigerator door panel.

My plan as of now is to paint all the cabinets and shelving white and use the ceiling and wall wood for the accent inlays. Since the blinds are a teal color and the cushions are beige I'm painting the cabinets fixtures to match one of those colors. I'm trimming out the new wood I'm installing with gloss white. I've already painted the cabinets white and they look really good. Its going to take quite awhile to paint everything that actually cant be removed from inside. I've been using high quality gloss spray paint since it just lays down smoother and in my opinion just looks sleeker. The wife flipped out the other day when she saw I spent $100 just on white spray paint. lol.

Default Cost of remodel

Tell your wife you got Krylon spray at Walmart that was a 25% bonus can. I bet DH and I spent at least $1.000 on our restoration from water damage. That wasn't even any roof repairs interior or exterior. Rv dealer rates are $120.00 an hr. Hobbies cost $.

Funny that you say that.. I did test the $1 cans at Lowes. It was like painting with milk. It wouldn't cover anything and would leave runs no mater what technique you used.

Default Grades of rattle can spray paint.

I have used Walmart brand of rattle can spray paint. It wasn't as good as name brand paint. I've had good luck with Rustoleum or Krylon. Just used paint stripper and did fourteen sets of hardware off interior doors at church. Then I used Krylon Brilliant Gold. Some people are lazy when they paint and paint over hinges!! They also don't remove electrical plates and paint over outlets..wall switches. I used hammered black to paint the tongue of my HiLo. Can't stand to see rusty wheels on the HiLo. You get what you pay for. Lexell caulk costs about eight $ a tube. It is a premium caulk.

I did partial ceiling repair and still have not painted it. I like the way the wood looks better than the white in mine, and wish I had the whole ceiling wood grain, not patched in. Stain it light and put a matte polyurathane on it.
