My Workshop - Part 6 - Paint and casings

My shop is divided into a front room that will be used for assembly and finishing and the larger workshop part at the back. Here’s a rough sketch of the layout:

Early in 2010 I painted all the OSB walls with 2 coats of Kilz original primer, this is the side wall:

The front room with insulation only:

and with the OSB:
I put two coats of primer on and then painted with white paint because I could still slightly see lines from the OSB through only one coat of primer:


The front window and door badly needed some casing:


First I made the window jambs, the bottom extends out and makes a sill: 
(these aren’t curved, it’s just poor photography on my part)


The casing is pine, covered with many coats of polyurethane:


The door has a matching casing style:


It looks so much nicer this way. The side windows have a matching casing style which I completed this year and already blogged about here with more detailed photos of each step.

A few more posts on the workshop and I'll be up to date...
