I’ve been painting for the last three days and I’m taking a break today. My body aches and I really need to get some other things done, like reading the manual for my job training on Tuesday. Yes, JOB training. I’ve been accepted to work as an exam invigilator at the local uni. It’s only casual work during the exam periods for the rest of the year but I’m grateful. Any extra bit of cash will help further our home renovations.
Speaking of which I’ll show you what I’ve been up to this week. My initial plan was to do the renovation room by room so that I can contain the mess in one small area. But it’s not going as fast as I hoped because if I do that, I am dependent on Richard and his dad to do the electrical stuff before I can paint. So I’m just painting whatever can be painted and not follow the recommended order to do things.
I painted the bathroom walls on Monday. The walls are now a bright, clean white instead of a dirty yellow. The bathroom instantly felt bigger. (Ignore the ceiling, tiles and accessories. That’s for the future.)
I’ve also started on my linen cupboard which ended up in the living room since we knocked down the wall last year. I’m attempting it to blend it into the walls by painting it white and removing the door knobs. The walls around it are yet to be painted.
WORK IN PROGRESS
I was even thinking of painting the inside walls of the cupboard a totally different colour. Maybe a sky blue. And I need new shelf lining. The store bought ones are not wide enough. Any ideas?
In case you were wondering where all the contents of the linen cupboard are, they are all in the spare room. Thank good for spare rooms!
