Drywall, Texture, & Primer

The single biggest thing that has “held us up” on our renovations, as far as time goes anyways, is contractors. We were hoping to finish our renovations in about 3 months, but it’s going to end up being closer to 6 months. We did everything keep the process moving on our end, but sometimes there’s nothing you can do! Our drywall was completed before our Georgia trip, so I was hoping the texturing would be completed while we were gone, so we could start painting when we got home. No such luck. But obviously they got to us eventually and we were so excited to move on to the next step!



I have realized that I didn’t take any pictures of the drywall before they textured, but after hanging the drywall, they had to tape & mud all the joints, then it was ready to be textured! The texturing was completed in two steps. The first step was to put a matching texture on the new drywall as the old, so that when the second round of “knock down” texture went on everything it would all match. It came out wonderfully!

And here is the kitchen and dining area after primer. Next step: paint!
