First piece of ceiling board is up in the Family room

We're getting the family room ready for Thanksgiving.

The first piece of ceiling board is in place in the Family Room... so much more to do... so little time!

I primed the 1st floor bathroom... again...

I so didn't like my mudding job in the 1st floor bathroom....
This is what it looked like with one coat of paint... before I primed all over it!

The afternoon light just showed all the flaws.  So recently I went after it again with mud then sanded.

Today I got back to it and applied "new" drywall primer all over.  Honestly, what was I thinking when I bought that regular primer?  Please... don't use regular primer on your NEW walls/ceilings!  You won't be happy!  Well, at least... I wasn't happy with the results.

Next up... I'm going to do a 2nd coat of drywall primer... then paint Willow Tree on the walls and ceiling.
