1. Removed giant vinyl panels
2. Spent way too much time removing vinyl panel adhesive
3. Sanded bead board to prep surface for primer and to remove any last bits of adhesive
4. Vacuumed bead board
5. Used a tack cloth to prepare surface to receive primer
6. Applied primer
I'm using Kilz acrylic base primer because it's always worked well for me on other projects. I'm so tired of this bead board, and I STILL have to rough up the other 1/2 of the bathroom (which wasn't under vinyl panels) and prime it too. Sigh. And THEN, I have to caulk any holes and actually paint the damn stuff. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming.
