It is rare when you don't come across problems that need some attention. Here are some things that were dealt with on this job.
Badly peeling paint on the ceiling with, the all too common, slight mildew growth.
No way around this one. Get out the scraper and scrape until the surface is sound. If any mildew growth remains, clean with the appropriate solution (bleach & water, vinegar, ammonia & water are just some of the choices). CAUTION!! Never mix bleach with vinegar or bleach with ammonia! It will create toxic fumes.
When all is done, you can either sand edges to feather in or skim coat it with drywall compound. This ceiling received a full skim coat.
Remember to wear an N-95 respirator during this entire process.
Silicone sealant applied to crown molding by previous installer.
Remove silicone and apply a paintable acrylic caulk.
Drywall above medicine cabinet was loose and needed replacement.
Remove medicine cabinet. Remove loose drywall. Measure, cut and install new replacement drywall. Embed FibaFuse joint tape over repair with hot mud, float 2 coats of plus 3 joint compound and sand.
(Sorry, finished up late and the lighting wasn't the best.)
Another fun project we had the pleasure of being a part of on this job was a closet transformation which was turned into multi-functional cabinetry with shelves and counter space.
Here is the before picture:
And here is the after picture:
Since there wasn't a lot of wall space, all th walls received a handbrushed finish with Duration Home Satin (Passive SW 7064). All the trim and cabinetry was done with ProClassic Semi-Gloss (Alabaster SW 7008) which happens to be Sherwin-Williams color of the year (2016).
Great job to be a part of. In the end, 36 labor hours was used on this entire project. It was a lot of work and I think it came out great. What do you think?
