Priming and Painting

It was a productive day at our house today – we started the painting process in the basement!  I realized how much work painting the basement was really going to be when we figured out how much primer and paint we would need.  This is definitely not a 2 coats of a pretty color and you are done kind of job.  Today we primed the entire family room and stairs area of the basement - both ceiling and walls.  Initially we were going to prime/paint all of the ceilings first, but once I realized we were going to run out of primer (8 gallons!), I decided we should change gears and prime the walls of the family room so we could start putting real color on the walls today too. I am so tired of white primer and "ceiling white" paint.  Lucky us, we still have the bedroom, bathroom, and a couple of closets to prime both ceilings & walls and then 2 coats of paint….

Here’s a sneak peek at the first COLOR we put on the walls in the basement:
