Plaster Finished

The newly resurfaced walls and ceiling in the guest bedroom look bea-oo-tiful. John did a real nice job in this room.
The plasterer recommended we wait a week before continuing work in this room in order to give the ceiling time to dry.

I am very much looking forward to getting back to work on the guest bedroom. I think it's going to look wonderful when it's done.


  1. You'll have to let me know the name of this guy. I'd like to send it on to my brother, in case they decide to hire out the work to finish Laura's art studio.

  2. Wonderful to get this done!

    Your plasterer told you to wait awhile before you slap on any latex paint, didn't he?

    For lime plaster it takes 6 months to cure. When my plasterer repaired the bad places in my 3rd floor ceiling with the current formula, I think he told me to give it a month, at least.

    Used to be, if you wanted color right away on new plaster, you brushed on a tinted lime wash. It soaked into the surface and could look really nice. My stairhall was tinted in teal and my living room in two shades of old gold. With any luck, I'll find out what color the dining room was, once I get the wallpaper off.

  3. Hmm...I was just told I should wait 10 days and then than gradually shrank during the conversation. Maybe it's just a case of give the customer what they want. =) I was planning to wait at least a week, maybe two. Definitely not 6 months!

  4. I also heard something similar. I heard they waited a year after building these houses, with new plaster walls, before painting them. I need to eventually get my walls re surfaced. I need to do some walls from scratch as well.
