Covered in't' Paint!
Two days ago I was driving past B&Q after taking Yorkie to work, and a moment of madness struck!
"I know," thinks I "I'll go and buy some tile paint and redecroate the bathroom!"
£100 on, and a good deal of mess, plaster and paint later, I have almost finished! And I'll have done it all by my self! Aint I a good un?
My bathroom is tiny, and I do mean TINY! As you walk in you almost fall over the sink on the right hand side. The loo is directly in front of you (your knees fit under the sink while you sit on it), and the bath is on the left, taking up the whole of the left hand side from the door to the 'far' wall, next to the loo. You cannot fot two people in this bathroom!
The tiles, which take up the while of the bath wall and come upto the window behind the loo, and about a third of the way up the sink wall, are a nasty dark green with gold fleck, and the non-tiled bits of wall are WOODCHIP painted dark red, again with gold flecks. Apart from being HORRID it also makes the tiny tiny room feel even smaller.
I have bought white tile paint, and a light sage green tile paint. The tiles are now brilliant white, with a band of the light green about a third of the way up (or across the top of the half tiltes wall). I am now waiting for the walls (now void of nasty nasty woodchip) to dry after their first coat of brilliant white bathroom / kitchen paint so I can give them a second coat, and for the filler to dry on the one section of bare wall over the foot of the bath so I can paint that too.
It been very very hard work, and halfway through day 3, it still isn't over. But I should get it finished today with a bit of luck! Then I can finally have a BATH and get rid of the paint which seems to have coated the better half of my body! Gahhh!
I'll post a photo when it's finished.
