Rather mixed day today. The painting is done and looks fabulous. Turns out I underestimated the amount of paint needed by about 10 litres resulting in a dash to B&Q early this morning. I’m really happy with my plum feature wall and now I can see the living room nearly done I’m definitely happy with yesterday’s choice of carpet. However there is a small issue of a hole in the ceiling. There was what looked like an old water stain on the ceiling in the bedroom upstairs and when we rolled the new paint on it has dampened and weakened a rather awful attempt of a repair. Luckily we have tested it for damp and there was no moisture reading so the ceiling is completely dry and obviously just old which is good, just a shame that I now have a hole in my newly painted ceiling! Seems like we will be sending dad up into the rafters later on this week strengthen and replace the shoddy work previously done. I’m contemplating sending him up with a load of loft insulation while he’s up there and he can distribute it out like a little rodent. Anything to reduce the electric bill right?
However in better news the plum wall is done and I love it!
Tomorrow is glossing day so I am sadly banned from the flat until at least 5pm in order to let it all dry. I don’t appear to be trusted not to stick to a door or smudge a skirting board. Even the painters know my clumsiness well it seems!
