After skim coating, there is A LOT of sanding to be done so the surface is nice and smooth and ready to be primed and painted. You can rent a dry wall sander which is very helpful for ceilings and tall walls (like ours) or you can sand manually. It takes A LOT of sanding to smooth out any bumps, especially if you aren't very careful with the skim coating but we are MUCH better than we were at the beginning of the project so it is moving right along.
This week, I have been doing some hand sanding and I have found that with just the right music, I can also get a pretty good work out. If you were to come in this week, this is what you would have found me doing so I thought I would share.
Yes, I know I look ridiculous but with the lack of blogging this week, I felt I owed our followers something amusing :) Happy Weekend. Stay tuned next week for our March Giveaway!
