Having had a wood burning stove fitted in the lounge the chimney area needed decorating as did the rest of the lounge. We have inherited dull green, the same emulsion on the walls, skirting, radiator, door, window frames.... yep no gloss, just a white ceiling !
We have invested £87 in paint, found our gear and a couple of old pots (total value with the new stuff about £100) from our previous house and we intend to see how far we can get round the house!
It was a cold windy day but dry and sunny so it was quite nice to be indoors working for a change. Got on quite well till my husband decided to go and cut the lawns - it has been so mild the grass was long!
Worked from 9.20 to 3.00 on the lounge and completed one coat on walls and one coat (white) on woodwork. Had to stop to chop firewood!
