Day 41: First Coat of Primer for Fireplace

On Saturday, 9th March, it was our turn to work on Our House. The weather was just the best possible March weather with stunningly bright sunshine after a very cold night.

The fireplace needed the first coat of primer paint. We made it a family event and everyone helped sanding down the layer of plaster, using brushes to get rid of all the dust, mask the tiles, and then paint the whole fireplace with white primer. Above is a photo of the result, and it looks almost like the finished product. A final layer of plaster with a special rough finish will be applied next, followed by primer and the final paint.
