I decided to prime all the walls and the ceiling in the bedroom. For this part of the project, I turned to old standby Kilz (latex) in white, a 2" nylon angle brush, and some good quality roller covers (including a long napped one for the textured ceiling). Here is the room all taped off, wrapped up, and cut in with primer:
Here is our favorite corner after two coats of Kilz. Would you change clothes and sleep in this room now? Yes, me too.
I took a little break by shelf-papering the linen closet. Because I need to have a stylish linen closet (since the rest of the house is not).
