The Unbearable Whiteness of Being

Painting, painting, painting.  That's about the sum of it these days.

Hard to photograph.  Above is a photo that you might guess you've seen before, but it is subtly different.

First we whiten a mottled white-ish surface with primer.

Then we turn that white surface into an off-white surface.

Then we cover that surface again with off-white for good measure.

I estimate we are about 1/3 of the way done with the process.  My shoulders burn. There are a lot of surfaces inside a house.

For now we are going with off-white (Benjamin Moore "White Dove") everywhere.  We expect to add color accents, but want to live in the spaces with our furnishings first.
