Day 292: Painting, Painting and More Painting

My daughter and I achieved a lot today in the spare room (her new room); however, because I’m still clearing up in there I haven’t got much time to write about the details. I’ll try and give you the gist of it.

We went out this morning to get some paint (she picked Dulux Timeless for the walls), sandpaper, polyfiller and a large dust sheet which covered the entire room which was brilliant.

Before starting the painting

We sanded and filled holes and then painted the ceiling, walls and wood panelling. It was hard work!

Towards the end of day 1

After 7 hours I asked my youngest to order us a pizza and we sat and ate it in amongst the mess. It was quite fun.

Dominos pizza was needed

We had a good playlist of songs going and worked until around 10pm.

We then had a short break and I returned back to the room just before midnight to empty the corner cupboard which was FULL of games, DVDs and CDs that will now have nowhere to go. They’re piled up in the room.

The corner cupboard needed to be emptied because the plumber might use some of it to make the en-suite bigger, although my daughter and I would prefer to keep the storage. We’ll see what happens. I just want her to be happy with the outcome.

I’m really tired now, but am faced with a messy kitchen which I can’t leave until tomorrow.

I’m going to need one of my special baths before I go to bed not only because I need to wash the paint off but because my neck is a bit achy from painting the ceiling.

Hope you’ve all had a good weekend.

Until tomorrow…

  1. Painting can be a full body work out.
