After the electrician had completed his ‘first fix’ of the master bedroom electrics (which took him one very long day), we were ready to get in a plasterer. My good friend Elisabeth stayed with us last weekend, but after she left on Sunday afternoon Alex took the radiator off the wall and we relocated ourselves into the guest room in preparation.
I have made the mistake before of assuming that the ceiling in a room looks ‘fine’, and doesn’t need plastering and then, after having all of the walls re-plastered, the ceiling then looked terrible in contrast. So, this time around, we got all four walls and the ceiling done.
The images here are from day 1 of the plastering, which took two full days last week over Thursday and Friday. I was amazed by how many tools and different sized brushes the plasterer had – just for this one task! It confirmed my suspicions that this was certainly a job that was best left to the professionals.
