Painting ceilings with a Graco Airless sprayerOur upstairs renovations on our house are well underway!  I am SO happy to say, that the walls and ceilings are painted and beautiful throughout the ENTIRE upstairs!  I hope you like pictures, because I went a little “before and after” crazy!  🙂

I have avoided painting the ceilings for years because I honestly can not stand to roll ceilings.  It takes forever, hurts my arms and takes forever… did I mention that already?  So I was thrilled when the wonderful folks at Graco sent me their Magnum X7 Sprayer, I couldn’t wait to try it out.

Tips for Painting Walls and Ceilings

The color scheme we picked for this house is more modern, with gray tones rather than beige.

The house is moving right along… and we ALL still like each other! Week 3 was super productive and Week 4…not so much.  I was sick all week and spent 0 hours at the house. The other 3 (hubby and our 2 partners) spent a grand total of 17 hours and 15 minutes. But, man… we needed that break! [Read more…]
