in my prime.

Sunday, December 8, 2013


3 days,
5300 square feet,
10 gallons of primer,
1 exhausted red head.

Here it is, my first official post as the 7th member of the Para Blog Crew.  

After 72 weeks of digging, pouring, framing, wiring, plumbing, drywalling... Casa Knol is double the size and thirsty for primer... or more specifically the Premium Latex Primer (5799) from PARA Paints.

I kicked off my painting party (for one) in the master bedroom before tackling the new main floor living space. On Thursday Saige and I spent the better part of our afternoon conquering my favourite "room", the attic and then my dad dropped by on the weekend to help "cut in" while I rolled the entire basement #phew. The only naked walls left in the house include our master bath and stairwell. Now I just need to get over my fear of heights and tint the en-suite primer - we're going with a deep charcoal - and then we'll be in the business of picking paint colours.  

*For the record I quickly traded in my hand roller for one of those extender pole doodads.
**Also I hate strongly dislike painting ceilings, just thought you should know.

I'm SO in love with the living space that opens onto our backyard. It looks so much bigger now - and brighter - thanks to it's new coat of PARA primer, yup just one coat provided all that coverage. I never realized how much I needed light until the back of our house was closed off for an entire winter (2012/13) and I felt like a depressed mushroom. The new 4-pane slider is making me insanely happy and I foresee a lot of laying in sunbeams in my future.

*please ignore our atrocious yard situation - it's on our summer project list, I promise. 

I went into Windsor Plywood - our Vernon PARA Paints dealer (a whopping 3 minute drive from my house) - and I couldn't tell who was more excited about my contest "win", Carey the PARA guy or me.

He hooked me up with some quality painting supplies and gave me some really good advice which I'll impart onto you in a monthly feature we'll call...



Now onto the fun but 'not-so-easy' task of picking paint colours, be prepared for some audience participation ;)
