« Part 14: tape & mud & sanding completed for ceiling drywall Part 15 of Garage Remodel series Part 16: garage ceiling remodel complete »

Sealing & painting on a 6’ ladder is rough :) Tried to use a pole, but just seemed more comfortable getting up on the 6’ ladder and going about it by hand with a roller. Here is the difference in sanding mud & tape. At first in the first picture, I was careful and diligent to have nice smooth surface. As time wore on at the achingly slow progress in the second picture, I went for the “just get it done” look. I had to remind myself it’s just a garage, not a living room. I decided to use semi-gloss white instead of semi-gloss sky blue (I have sunset yellow/sunrise yellow on my walls so thought blue would be a cool theme, but eh) This was Saturday. Today Sunday, I’m afraid to watch my Steelers play the Patriots (backup qb) will affix the light strips, electrical faceplates, and start putting back up my 6” hvac ducting (which I have a couple ideas to edit).
