You know that feeling. You wake up on Monday morning, all full of the joys.
“What will my project be for this week? Oh, I know, I’ll redecorate the sitting room. It’s been the same since I moved in 10 years ago. Time for an overhaul.”
So I hauled my ass into Woodies and after spending some time perusing the colour charts I came home laden with paint, brushes, rollers, polyfilla, masking tape, turpentine, co-coordinating cushions, a rug and a lamp-shade.
I love painting, though I hate masking the place first. It was so much easier the first time I painted it as there was no furniture in the way or curtains to be taken down. As I want to put the flat screen telly on the wall, I had to take down mirrored tiles and wall lights that were over the fireplace. That left little holes that had to be polyfillered in.
Dad had been tutoring me the first time. Second time around and I’m on my own!
Preparations done I started on the painting and got the first coat done yesterday.
This morning I went in and thought
“Mmm. Not sure if I’m mad about the colour.”
TOUGH SH1T NOELEEN!
I’m not going through all that again. It’ll be fine when it gets a second coat, fingers crossed!
