Lime Paint Recipe
One to one Type S lime to H20
2 to 5 % Acryl 60, (acrylic-polymer emulsion that is mixed with portland cement mortars, plasters, stucco, and concrete mixes)
mix well, paint with brush . It goes on thin and clear and dries opaque. Stores forever, don't let it freeze. You can mix with lime fast pigments for pastel color. See earthpigments.com for pigments and more
All appliances, bathroom fixtures and lighting came from our local Habitat for Humanity Restore and
Roger Hoffman our local "junk" dealer. (The exception is the kitchen goose necks that we fashioned from a common outdoor shade we got at the building supply store).
Keep an open mind when renovating and work with the most beautiful things you find rather than having a preconceived idea if you want to keep the budget down. I enjoyed the challenge.
