    You all did such an awesome job. I know it's been a TON of work, but you aren't afraid to learn new things and you pay so much attention to detail and it REALLY shows. It's really something to be proud of and especially since it's been a family effort. SO proud of you all. Can't wait to see Sarah's reaction when she see's it in person.

    You guys did a great job. Paint makes for a huge transition in the project, and if Sarah wants to ad some color in the future, we can help her out!!

    Love the paint color, adds warmth to the rooms. The color is very similar to the color we have in all the rooms that we painted years ago. I used a power paint roller many many years ago and I thought that wnt very well.

    Time lapse was good as we could see the difference as it went on. I’ve never sprayed before but after watching this I must give it a try. Was it a lot faster than just rolling? Great job and glad to see the walls finished.

    It looks really good Folks!!! Nice work!!! The texture on the walls and ceiling looks better than I expected. Its a nice touch! HVAC tip... we used to spray our register boxes and return boxes (I think you called them the vents) with flat black paint. That way you don't see the glare of light on the sheet metal through the defusers and grills. Just a nice finished touch. Cheers!

    My house is all white, walls and ceiling. There is a bonus to that, that maybe you haven't come to yet but when one is older, complete white negates the need for wearing glasses all the time. Apart from the fact that it always looks fresh and clean - great job you have done.

    Nice job with primer! Good, solid coat of primer seals texture and will help reduce amount of final paint needed... and primer is MUCH less costly! Color pigment in paint tends to settle to the bottom. So, unless full 5 gal is mixed up before pouring half into another bucket, it makes sense the color looked different between them.

    It takes a little practice to be able to get the right speed down so that you’re not putting on too much paint for the person rolling behind you I do it for a living Also usually with semi gloss paint I don’t put any water in it the primer could’ve probably used it because it was a highbuild primer That’s why the spray dip was fingering a little bit

    Martin, you look adorable in your tyvek suit! It IS just what you need for spray painting though. I used a power paint roller instead. (I've used both.) The power roller is almost as fast as the spray painter, but is a one pass (no post rolling effort) job. Also, no over spray. Just a through for when you do your main house. Looks like you did a really good job! It's hard work no matter how you cut it. Yup, second coat doesn't soak in, so you spray about 1/3 as much paint. Also, The paint fumes will make you high as a kite (ie. you need to ventalate!!!) Remember next time! 😀👍👍

    Hey guys doing a great job. Just remember when you paint new drywall it acts like a giant sponge, so your going to go through the paint and you should be using a 3/4 inch roller nap. It holds more paint. And years down the road when you repaint you won’t go through so much paint. I’m a professional painter and do drywall taping and muddying and texturing. Keep up the great work

    Looks good. But you do also the rolling over it to get the texture of a role. If you later on need to repaint a part of the wall, you will never match the texture of the spray, but the one with the rollerr :D

    Sprayers waste a lot of paint (It falls to the ground) I like using an 18" roller for most of the walls, and a 9" near windows and the smaller wall portions. You have to roll anyway even after spraying. But It looks fantastic! I LOVE that texture you guys did!! Keep up the great work..

    The paint really did make a major transformation of your job site. It looked really great. I know that paint does improve the appearance. If it did not change the way things look, why would we use paint at all? Paining and removing the protective coverings has brought you a long way forward, well done.

    I think you are smart going with white walls and ceilings because, 1) It's easier, 2) It's brighter, and 3) You can add accent colors with rugs, artwork, furniture, and pillows.

    There was a time I painted ceiling, walls, and anything not wood trim a bright, lemon yellow, quality, high gloss paint. I wanted it brighter (and durable hence the high gloss) and when I walked in to begin removing the taped newspaper over windows and woodwork I was having a few moments if self doubt which got worse when the windows were uncovered. In the end, I LOVED it but did go on to have more indoor, green leaved plants than ever before because they toned down the bright yellow very pleasantly.

    Another consideration with the paint sprayer is nozzle size. size 15 came with my machine and it throws down a lot of paint. There are many nozzles sizes that control volume of paint.

  • Terry Henderson

    If you're thinking of an accent wall - consider a cloth covering instead. As needed, seam strips of cloth to a whole wall covering size. Then use the VERY fine finishing nails, as fine as what will hold up under the tension of the cloth chosen, to secure the cloth to the wall; these nails come narrower in diameter than many staples.

    I am retired after a 30 year career in the paint and coatings industry and I commend your choice on Benjamin Moore primer and paint. Their coatings are of the industry's finest and Regal is the flagship of their product line. My homes were only painted with Benjamin Moore products inside and out. You will be very pleased with the results and the longevity this product delivers. Great value and choice. I've told customers for years that coatings are still one of things in this world that you get what you pay for. I enjoy your videos, your family, and your life choices. Best of luck in all you do!!

    IMPORTANT DETAILS on spray painting. Do a test spray before to make sure the pressure is good. When you hold the spray handle TRY to maintain an even distance from the wall. Always hold the sprayer straight to the wall and DO NOT angle it to one side up or down or else you risk the paint being applied unevenly. Watch videos of pros doing it on youtube and watch their techniques. Lastly when you are done find a bucket of water and drop the supply hose into it and spray water via the gun back into the supply bucket so all the paint gets flushed out. This will be a fast change so be prepared. Have a good light handy so you can check the coverage by shining the light on the wall to check for bareish spots.

    Hi, you should not use a drill driver to mix the paint or mud. You can get a “slow” driver that is made for mixing paddles and will work great, a normal drill will mix it too fast and introduce air bubbles into the paint. The proper tool will not only mix at a slower rate, but you will also not run the risk of burning the drill out
