When we first came to look at the house i made a smart remark about these horid sponge painted walls... the owner clearly misheard and replied "yes, that was my daughters creative touch" and proceeded to go into detail about how you replicate such a texture - just incase we needed to touch them up at any point.
4 months was enough for me. Well actually it started a little differently to be honest. I got told off for starting exterior jobs in the middle of winter along side trying to rip the kitchen out well before we needed too... a month in fact. And so, to satisfy my need for destruction Gaz let me get the paint brush out - so long as it was INTERIOR painting.
So the yellow sponge walls got dealt to:
Pour a bucket of tea colour into a bucket of spanish white and turns out you get a nice light tea colour. Quite like..
Flush mounting the lightswitches was also a priority. So out came the 1950's 40mm spacers. Yus.
Also, out came the multi-box plugged into multibox with extension lead running around all four walls to the other side of the room to multibox. Safe as ever. And in went powerpoints!!!!!
Still to concquer in our room will be the light situation. Currently the only main light resides over in the far corner of the ceiling. Quite a good position if you like half the room in the dark.. Me? I would prefer the centre thanks.
