From the album: The Laurel BuildI found this raw wood primer sealer. Just trying to see if it is better than Kilz. It had no odor, which I like. I applied plaster over the interior walls to reduce the plywood grooves. Probably was an extra step I didn't need to do. I sanded a ton of the plaster off.
I have been OBSESSIVELY reading the entries for the Beacon Hills over at More Minis blog: http://moreminis.blogspot.com/ She has two different Beacon Hill walk-throughs that are VERY helpful. THANK YOU MORE MINIS!! I did have a few questions that I thought I would ask her (and all of you -- please chime in with your thoughts). 1. I have decided to do the option where you glue on the siding before you paint it. More Minis: Do you prime the siding before you paint it? From the blogs/pictures, it doesn't look like it, but I couldn't really tell. I would love to NOT prime the siding, so I am hoping this is your answer. Does everyone prime their siding or no? 2. Oh, the Beacon Hill trim... So many little doodads!! More Minis: You know those little tiny pieces that you glue together and put under the roof trim? Like the REALLY tiny pieces. Do I have to prime those? I also couldn't tell if they were primed first. I really don't want to prime them. :nonono: This is because I am LAZY. I will admit that. I'm nowhere near ready to add these things on, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask now. Same question for door trims, window trims, and little skinny sticks you might add to cover cracks. ? Basically, I'm trying to figure out what I can skip priming. I'm using paint on all of the interior walls (I'm not really a wallpaper person). So I AM priming the walls before I paint them. I'm being a good girl there. Thank you for all of your help!!
