Bath - 8.5' x 8.5' and 7.5' at highest point:
This is (finally, drum roll, yay!) our attempt to finish off the upstairs full bath renovation. All of the trim and beadboard wainscot has been painted by yours truly. The top half of the room was skim coated with a plaster veneer by an amazing plasterer named Kieran, the owner of Bestwall Plastering in New Jersey. The new plaster is cured now and ready to paint. There will need to be a coat of primer and then two coats of paint. It will be eggshell blue. You can see my paint samples in the photos.
Here's a basic view of the tub and SW corner, showing how the wainscot is topped by plaster:
If you have ideas about this room, they'd be welcome.
Kitchen - 8.5' x 18.5' and 8' high:
Most but not all of these walls are plaster. Two sections are drywall, where a door was blocked off and stairs added added over the years. The wall behind the sink is covered with some sort of unknown splash guard-y substance. The wallpaper behind the stove is a vinyl wallpaper to be removed. The paint on the east exterior wall looks to be painted right over very old wallpaper. That combo has been totally melded together by time, and that old wallpaper will stay and just get another coat of paint. The new wall color will also be yellow, perhaps a slightly brighter, Provencal yellow.
None of the trim or ceiling or cupboards are to be painted (yet). This room will get renovated sometime in the next ten years, and then we'll deal with cupboards, etc.
Ok, so the kitchen is also on the back of the house, on the NE corner, opposite end of the house from the studio. I'm entering from the dining room.
There are a couple of places on the east exterior wall where some old moisture and shifting has buckled a very old layer of wallpaper under the paint. This is ok. We'll want your advice, but probably not feel the need to do anything too complicated to hide it.
Breakfast Nook - 6.5' x 8.5' by 8' high at its highest:
Hall and Stairwells:
There are two stairwells, both in the back half of the house, the "back" stairwell off the kitchen and the "front" stairwell off the dining room.
The stairwells are 12.5' high at their highest point, 8.5' deep. The upstairs hall is 20.5' long and 3.5' wide with a 7.5' ceiling. None of the trim will be painted, but the ceilings will.
This is also pretty simple to photograph. We'll go up the back stairwell, from the kitchen, which you've already seen:
And now, from the stairs, looking back up to the hall:
