Done! And It's beautiful!
Well, it was a lot of work, I have to admit. But to have it done makes it all worthwhile. I think it looks beautiful. The ceiling was gray, and I really love this baltic blue color. It would not have been nearly as much fun if, after all the scraping and priming, I ended up with another gray ceiling.
After I took the first photograph, I backed up and included the pot of Geraniums that hangs at the entrance of the porch. I love the contrast of the red against the blue.
I am not sure that this gives a sense of how much paint I chipped off the ceiling. This is a fairly large pile of paint chips. But there is no scale to the image, except the fact that the porch floorboards are two inches wide, which gives you some sense of the scale. Guess what else this photo tells us. It tells us that my next project is to use paint stripper on most of the front porch floor. There are probably six coats of paint on the floor as well.
