Before, during and after.
A not so exciting ceiling paint lol.
Using @benjaminmoore ultra flat ceiling paint in white. Forgot my GoPro yesterday but today I will get some video of the final coat.
We are back at this job to start the finish coats (we left because the floors were supposed to be refinished while we're gone, and they were not. So now we are finishing ceilings and going one coat on all until the floors get finished...).
I just love clear communication, it's my favorite.

The one on the left: $34 from my supplier
The one on the right: $44 from janovic on 23rd St.

Crazy how much things are marked up in the city, which is why I do not buy anything in the city unless I'm in a pinch. 
I was in a pinch.
At least @sherwinwilliams has standardized pricing so it's the same no matter where you go. Unless I'm wrong, which I could be. It happens often.

It's nice when you can enjoy the fruits of your labor. Relaxing on the deck we refinished earlier this year. 
Have a great weekend everyone!! #finefinish #finepainting #exceptionalinteriors #exceptionalexteriors #prepiseverything #prepwork #jobsiteprotection #nyc #nycpainter  #painting #housepainting #housepainter #diy #interiorpainting #skimcoat #taping #plaster #drywall #repair #sherwinwilliams #benjaminmoore #interiordesign #design #quality #efficiency  #mtpfinepainting #craftsman #craftswomen #keepcraftalive

Nice repaint we completed for @ditmasparkrenovations yesterday. If you follow them, this is the job where they recreated the cove around the fireplace and made all the custom doors and cabinets. Super clean and tight job and a dream to prep and paint behind! 
Walls were painted using @benjaminmoore regal select matte and trim was painted using regal select semi gloss. The colors escape my mind, sorry! Oh and the ceiling is white.

Quick little repaint from yesterday.
First two pics are the before, last two pics are the after. 
Painted the ceiling, trim and the walls with an accent color. Very minor repairs and some caulking. 
Not every job has to be a glorious display of Craftsman ship, you can still achieve a great quality job by simply doing the job correctly and efficiently while using quality paints and materials.
All paint was @sherwinwilliams.
Ceiling promar 200 extra white flat
Trim emerald urethane enamel semi gloss extra white.
Main walls duration matte in BM color AF 680
Accent wall duration matte on BM color 2083-20 cranberry cocktail.
Used 3/8" nap purdy microfiber covers and purdy brushes. 
Tried to free hand the cut and was successful against the ceiling and one corner, had to tape everything else off.

Here is a quick video compilation of almost all of the steps taken (didn't get the back filling, skipped one coat of skimming and missed the sanding, but you get the jist). I tried to keep the camera angles consistent and keep in mind the end result I was imagining. For never using a @gopro or any video camera, I definitely learned alot and can't wait to get some more cool work videos. 
If anyone is wondering, I used filmora wondershare video editing software. 
Who knows the song?
First three to get the right answer will get some of my new stickers 👊

I am continuously impressed by my crew! 
My man Cesar took this from back fill and mesh to final coat and he freaking nailed it! Not bad for his first time going from start to finish on a surface like this, so proud!
This ceiling was scraped, reinforced with plaster washers, bonded, back filled, fully meshed, coated with standard durabond 90, two coats of ez sand durabond 90 (applied in opposite directions to aid smoothing it out) and polished with a coat of bucket mix. Then it was sanded and spray primed.
He learned alot on how to deal with old plaster walls and how each step affects the next. To me it's important to let the guys handle things like this so they have a better understanding of how things work and therefore learn faster and improve their skills faster. Hands on experience is the best and he combined that with everything we have taught him and from what he observed watching us. 
Great job dude!

Progress photos, stating with before and finishing with primer.
We scraped away everything that was loose, applied bonding agent, reinforced the area and seams with plaster washers, applied heavy duty mesh tape and coated that with standard durabond 90, then we flushed the area with EZ sand durabond, then we meshed the whole wall and coated out with standard durabond, then a coat of ez sand 90, and two coats of bucket mix to finish it off. 
Then we sanded everything with @festool sanders, cleaned, prepped for spray (taped things off, etc.) And finally sprayed @sherwinwilliams multipurpose acrylic primer tinted slightly on site to a light gray using my new @gracopaintsprayers airless with a titan standard 415 tip and back rolled with a 3/8" microfiber roller cover. 
Alot of work, but to us this is the only way. 
Each and every step is important and can not/should not be skipped if you want a product that not only looks good but will stand the test of time. 
Prep is Everything.

Little volunteer project from this Saturday. The SPCA needed the gas pipes painted safety yellow as per ConEd. 
Gave them a hit with a wire brush, a good scruff with a scotch Brite pad, cleaned with paint thinner and gave it two coats of @sherwinwilliams oil based exterior.

In order:
The French doors coated twice with liquid masking (heavy coats).
The doors spray primed.
And last, the video is me scoring and peeling off the liquid masking. 
They all came off this easy.
Thanks to everyone for the advice you shared, took some pointers that definitely helped.
We will most definitely be using this product again!

We made some serious progress on this project this week! 
All the walls and ceilings were base coated, first coated and some second coated and all the trim was sanded using @festool RTS400 and the RO 90 with triangle attachment. 
We base coated with standard durabond to cover the mesh and first coated with EZ sand 90. The second and final coats will be bucket mix (compound mixed with water and plaster of paris, more on that in another post). These walls/ceilings have come a looong way and are starting to look pretty good. Next week we apply the finish coats, sand and get everything primed before we get kicked off site for kitchen install and floor refinishing. 
Oh, and don't worry, I have many, many videos of me skim coating! I'm sure you all can't wait to see them haha!
