Day 1, Skimcoat Done

Today marks the first day of our home office makeover. I started out by applying a thin layer of joint compound to the walls and ceiling to smooth out the pitted texture and cracks in the plaster. I also caulked the crown moulding and most of the bookcases.

Paint samples.
We're going with the second one from the right, Behr Washed Khaki (UL170-8) .

My helpers.

Btw, the scaffolding has been one of our smartest purchase yet.

 Phew. I'm wiped out and my shoulders are sore, but I got a lot done. Calling it a day.
