Painting the undercoat
Jason used builder's bog (a second best friend) to cover the nail holes and other imperfections in the wood and after it was dry, sanded it smooth.
We used a Dulux primer/sealer for the base coat, caulked any gaps with "No More Gaps" and painted two coats of Dulux 101 low sheen white for the the VJ board and two coats of Dulux high gloss white for the window trim and sill.

We like a stark white despite it not being terribly fashionable. There are so many different whites but we like this one best. It also keeps it simple when we buy paint. No-brainers are our specialty.

After this small section is done, Jason will leave the rest of our bedroom incomplete, so that he can start work on Number 1 Son's bedroom. It was always our intention to make a start on his bedroom first since it is in the worst condition.
It should be interesting sleeping in a half-painted bedroom but I guess you learn to live with things like that when renovating. There are worse things.
