This post is a bit overdue but to keep the chronology correct here goes anyway.
The train room is ready for paint finally! All of the drywall and joint compound work is complete and the cleanup finished. My lovely and painting talented wife has begun to work her magic with the brushes and rollers.
An interesting learning throughout the basement drywall project has been an opportunity to work with several different brands of PVA drywall primer. We have gone through several 5 gallon buckets. Each time we purchased a different brand. For the train room we purchased Behr brand. Once it has been used I will create a new post that will offer our opinion of each of the brands. For now I will only say there is quite a difference from brand to brand.
A decision that looms large is the wall color. At the moment Behr 540C-2 Serene Sky looks like the choice. I want the walls to look like sky yet I don’t want an overpowering blue that would get old real fast.
