3/18/2013 Update: All interior painting is done now time for stain.
All of the interio painting is done and I have to say that if I never paint another dark accent wall in my life, I will be a happy man! It took 5 coats of paint to get a really good cover on the dining room accent wall and that was with colored primer as a base....but it does look cool!
Finished putting the second coat on all of the painted trim last night and so now it is time to move on to the staining, which fortunately, there is not as much of.....I think!
I plan to get the tile floors started this week as well so that the finish carpenter can simply put the trim down and I do not have to work around it. The stone work is coming along, although our weather this weeks does not look conducive to outdoor work.
