Painted Plywood Floors - Hurry Up and Wait

Now that the entire upstairs had received the full treatment: sanded, filled, primered, the floor was really beginning to take shape.  Our builder even came out to take a look and was very surprised at the results!  His skepticism was fading fast!


Unfortunately, this is the part where we have to wait.  The Monday after I finished the first coat, I went back out to lay down the second coat on the hallway, bathroom, and balcony, only to discover the drywall installers had begun work and laid stuff ALL over my floor!!  

At least it had already been primed, and hopefully everything they did will come up, although I foresee a few hours of my time going back over everything just to make it as smooth as possible.  And I'm PRETTY sure my vacuum cleaner is gonna have its work cut out for it.


The texturing is almost done, and the trim carpenter is going onsite this week, so hopefully I'll be able to get back to my floors and finish what we started!

Stay tuned!
