Day 12

Annie and I were snowed in today and Jon headed to the house.  He left around 8:30 in the morning and yes he's still there at 11pm.  Today's to do list?  Paint ceilings, prime walls, put in dead bolts on the front and back doors.  I've been calling him throughout the day (which I know drives him nuts) just to make sure he hasn't passed out from the paint fumes.  We were told the only paint that will cover the strange red on the walls from bleeding through is to use oil based primer.  Guess what?  it didn't work.   The red is bleeding through and turning our primer pink.  If anyone knows what this mysterious 100 year old red color is from please enlighten me.  One coat of drywall mud and two coats of oil based primer has not stopped it.

more red paint? sorry... not helpful. that totally sucks. have you tried tinting the primer with the color you plan to paint over it? or maybe you could do a beaded board paneling or tall wainscoting to just completely cover it?
your house is SO cool- i love seeing the updates!
