After last week, we were ready to get the kitchen in a more semi-finished state with normal walls. Our drywall skim coat dried well. We had to scrape off any larger bumps and then wet sanded to make sure we had a smooth surface for the texture.
Prep work took FOREVER. Literally at least five hours...
Once that was done, Rob could put texture up. Jonathan and Sharon helped out while Mom, Dad, and I worked on other projects around the house.
First, Rob mixed until he had the perfect texture, then he used the hopper ("the hoppa!") to spray the texture on the walls. After about 20 minutes he knocked down the texture to finish the effect. All in all, it looks great! We are excited to start painting next weekend.
