The next step was to paint the room, which i chose to do myself to save money. The good news is that I got to paint the room with nothing but the bath tub installed. The bad news is that I had less than 24 hours to prime and paint the ceiling and walls, because as he left at 10:30 the carpenter announced he'd be back at 8 AM tomorrow to continue his work.
Right after he left I set up my supplies, poured primer into the roller pan, and got started. The priming was done about two hours after I started. I washed out the brushes, changed out of my paint clothes, ate lunch, and chilled out until things were dry enough to recoat.
Round Two was to paint the ceiling. I HATE painting ceilings, because it's hard to tell what parts you've already done and I inevitably miss a spot. Several years ago I had good success with color changing ceiling paint, but I found out that the humidity in a bathroom can cause the color to get "reactivated" so this time I was stuck with traditional white.
The ceiling took about an hour. Even though I loaded the roller with lots of paint and (thought) I went over each section several times, when the paint dried there were still a couple of small areas to touch up. I washed out the brushes again and took a quick shower.
After dinner I put on my paint clothes yet again, got my gallon of Swiss Coffee satin finish, and started on Round Three. The pale tan paint made a nice contrast against the primed white wall and I was able to finish up the job in about 90 minutes. When I was done I cleaned up everything yet again and called the day done. I've got my fingers crossed I did a good job, but I won't know for sure until the paint finishes drying.
