Day 5: I've put the first coat of paint on the WC ceiling (which doesn't look too bad), and the bedroom walls (which look pretty iffy, if I'm honest). Hopefully they'll all look better when the second coat goes on tomorrow.

painting ceilings

(Link)
After recently painting a ceiling for the first time, having mostly lived in brand new houses,we have found that with any form of shiny finish e.g. gloss, vinyl silk, it is incredibly hard to achieve a good result. by comparison, a matt paint goes on much better.Obviously older properties may have a less than wonderful plaster, when, in the worst case senario, a skim is the only answer.Hope this is of some help!

The odd thing is that it went a lot better in the lounge (where the walls/ceiling should be of equal quality). Ah well, I'll see how today's coat turns out.
