Finished Kitchen Light Project - Painting Ceiling

      My husband installed new LED dounwn lights in our kitchen in February this year. He was going to repair the drywall soon, but we were too busy for another renovation project.

      Last month, drywall contractors eventually repaired the ceiling. By the way, we didn't hire them, but our HOA sent them to our home in order to repair other drywall that day, and a head of HOA contractors saw the kitchen ceiling and told us that they would fix it as well. It was a really generous offer! We were very impressed at their professional work! They did it in a few hours. :)


       Then, we painted the ceiling ourselves. Just like the bathroom wall paint we have done, we used Kilz Premium Primer and Olympic One Paint.
KILZ Premium High-Hide Stain Blocking Interior/Exterior Latex Primer/Sealer, White

Olympic One Tintable Semi-gloss Latex Enamel Interior Paint and Primer in One (Gypsum OL133 N32)


      We finally finished our kitchen light project! :)

      The reason why our HOA sent drywall contractors to our home was that we had a problem with a ceiling leak in our living room in January and February because of California's historic winter storms. It heavily rained in Southern California last winter, and our condominium had leaks from the roof. That's why our HOA repaired the roof and fixed the ceiling in our home (It took six months to finish it.). We were going to replace old carpets to new laminate flooring in our entire home, but the HOA contractor recommended us to replace it to vinyl flooring because laminate is not 100% waterproof. That's why we changed our plan. We purchased luxury vinyl planks and now working on flooring project. :) I'll write about it next time. :)
