Our next step in painting the bathroom is to prime the areas that we’ve just repaired and we have everything cleaned up. So let’s get going we got about primer here, I’m gonna do is gonna use my painters tool it off when you have primer shaken up at the store it makes a lot easier. I just have them give it a little shake, if not they usually provide you with a paint stirrer but this problem looks like it’s all good ready to go.
So I’m gonna grab my mic up my brush, what I have here is the two inch angled sash brush it’s good for getting the different angles on tricky surfaces like this so I’m gonna pour just gonna be about a third of a cup what I want to do is I want to turn off the edge there catch all the drips not a bad idea at this point to put on some rubber gloves to protect our hands so we don’t get too messy so what we’re gonna focus on priming mostly is the areas that we’ve removed and we’ve exposed the bare surface underneath now this is wood so this has to be sealed with the primer so that what the primer is going to do is it’s going to sink into all the imperfections and areas that are compromised and chalky and it’s gonna be a good go-between for a final coat so you can just go right ahead your dipping the brush and then you’re getting the excess paint off of the brush.
So it’s not dripping you want to get as much on the brush as you can and then remove it you can either do that by slapping both sides of the pan or some people like to dip in and then just kind of knock off that paint so it’s still pretty well loaded up you go just going around you don’t have to be fussy at this stage about any type of order she going just make sure that you get all of the areas now priming is very helpful to the final coat because a lot of times if you skip this step which or anything I’m doing is you’re painting over flaking chalky or greasy surfaces and the paint just not going to stick it’s going to look good at first and it’s gonna hold up maybe for a little while but within the first year it’s probably gonna stop flaking and peeling and cracking once again just wanna lay .
It pretty much as heavy as you can get it in there and then you brush it out see I think it’s very nice and white I like to let the premise seep right in to seams and joints and cracks and all those areas those are the key areas because what you’re doing is you’re exposing several different types of surface chalky flaking plaster and bare wood and that’s the kind of stuff that you want to always have primed okay we’re going to continue right along now this is an area that’s pretty common and problematic for bathrooms around the tub surround and the shower surround what you get is a lot of moisture from the tile area meeting where the plaster is and the paint comes really compromised so this is a good opportunity for us to seal it up with our primer a little bit of area that we say it that’s it.
