Default Ceiling Grate/Vents ....blending in

This is sort of part of the chicken coop wood project.....make the vents blend in....
I scuffed, spray Binned and then base coated all the pieces. I will install them on then match things on the ceiling

I'm not sure what upsets me more, my unconventional use of language or that you let your granddaughter read PT.

I did pause for a second when I wrote that, but that how we say it up here. Silly Northerners.

Hmmm, I had the fronts all ready to install with a glaze on them. Then I was informed the backs and flapper part or whatever it is called had to be done as well, you know, so you don't see any GASP!, white.

...got them down,spray binned the innards, had to repaint allof it because of overspray to the fronts.....

Man, I was looking forward to wood graining these at least a little bit. Once installed,the GC said they're fine as is.
They look okay,could've been better.

Just curious. Why didn't they just get wooden ones?

I don't know. Tell you what I'll call them up and ask them and I'll get back to you later.
