Renovation and Restoration Corner #3: Plaster and Painting

Our Church has not been painted in probably over 70 years. Evergreene Painting Studios has begun to repair the plaster and paint our Church. The first step is to wash all the walls, then paint them with a primer coat.

The primer highlights the cracks in the plaster. There are many more than we could ever really see, given the lighting and dirt and grime on the walls. (Photo on left)

The plaster is then repaired and made ready for the final coat. (Photo on right)
