My prepped exhibition space. It is a lot of space – roughly 250cm wide at each end and 450cm in length along the back. Two coats = 5l of paint. Finding the paint became a much more difficult task than anticipated. With B’n’Q discontinuing Crown paint, and Homebase not stocking the colour i needed. I ended up at a local decorating store in Aberystwyth, which thankfully had a crown paint machine and mixed the colour up for me, there and then. Grey made the coverage of the wall a lot easier and to be honest, my boards were in pretty decent condition. Which I am super thankful for, as with a space this size, it would become a lot of work very quickly with bad boards. Taping was still a nightmare but overall I believe it still looks smart. Now all is left is to paint the mirror plates and hang…. It is all becoming a bit real.
Many thanks for reading 🙂
