If you follow this blog, you will know that I am in the process of decorating my stairs and landings. In a three storey Victorian terrace house, it entails a lot of wood work.
I finally got everything sanded down and ready to paint and on Wednesday intended to start the painting.....only to find that I only had very narrow paint brushes. Good for fiddly bits but no good for a huge cupboard , three more cupboard doors and four more doors. So on Thursday I bought wider paint brushes, but as Mum had been here for the day, no work done. Friday, after a doctor's appointment and I was thinking of starting, Oliver let me know that he was going to be home for the weekend.
Which brought me around to today. I decided I would make a start, and stop wasting time. Guess what? The undercoat has gone solid in the tin, so now I need to buy paint. I am debating buying some of the one-coat gloss, so that I will only have to paint each surface the once. This job has gone on long enough, and it's about time I put paid to the delays and got stuck in.
Next time I blog, I will most probably have white streaks in my hair, as I seem incapable of painting without getting it in my hair.
After the gloss is done I can then emulsion all the ceilings, and strip the remainder of the paper, prior to painting the walls with emulsion. A warm sunny colour above the dado rail and Victorian red below.
