Smooth as Silk

If you think this is about my newly finished plaster walls in the butler’s pantry, you’re wrong. I’m just sitting here, just as I do every Sunday morning, knocking back a few shots Kessler Blended Whiskey. Hmmm, this stuff really is a Smooth as Silk.

"Smooth as silk." One of the best-selling blended whiskeys. Simply terrific!

It just so happens that my newly plastered walls are smooth as silk, as well. What an odd coincidence, don’t you think. Here I am enjoying my morning shots of Kessler’s Smooth as Silk Blended Whiskey, and in the next room there are my smooth as silk plaster walls. It doesn’t get any better than this.

My hopes of finishing the plaster job in the butler’s pantry mid-week were dashed. It was one of those weeks where I just had no energy at all. It’s too bad really, because the skim coating is the quickest of the three coats. All together I would say I spent about 7 hours, start to finish on the plaster work in the room.

As with the bathroom, there is no need for sanding the walls after the final coat goes on. I must say, I’m really getting pretty good at this plaster work. If I’ve learned one thing over the past few years about doing a traditional, 3 coat plaster job, that would be: Don’t Panic. Just take your time, and keep working at it. Eventually, the walls will be Smooth as Silk.

It's as if having your work shoes in every photo has taken the place of having your cat in every photo.
