House remodeling – living room painting episode

The day started with me taking out my iPhone with serious intentions to document the process with photos.  I soon realized after one coat of  Behr ultra pure white flat enamel on the ceiling that there was no way to keep my beautiful communicator free from paint.  So you are only getting one crappy cameraphone picture.  Deal with it.

Here is a 6-foot section of rented scaffolding

FYI, the ceiling at the highest point is 18 feet up.  I had grand plans to put in some recessed lighting, there is lots of extra money in the budget, but absolutely no spare time.   When you combine the 6″ of the rented scaffolding, the 6.5 feet of the roller with extension, and my 8-foot reach, I can just  barely hit the top of the crest.  

The first part of the morning was covering the newly plastered ceiling with a coat of primer.  After a quick break for lunch, the first layer of color went up on the ceiling, and then I started to work the walls.  By the end of the day the entire room was covered. When it is all said and done, these are the final colors:
