I second-coated the walls today, looks much more ‘solid’ now. Once that was dry I could get on and fit the architrave moulding around the doors, a fiddly job but makes so much difference.
Next up was the dado rail, a nice easy job to fit as all the walls are flat and even. The Evostik “Sticks like sh*t” adhesive really does work for this job. I used pins every couple of feet to support the rail while the glue grabbed and the pins could then be removed.
The sockets and switches were also fitted, tested and connected up. The next job is to fit the skirting boards followed by a coat of Dulux Satin White paint – I’m using pre-primed MDF mouldings for architrave, dado and skirting – this stuff is much flatter than normal pine mouldings with no twist or warp anywhere.
