We originally just wanted to paint the nursery, but then we expanded to the hallway, to the master bedroom, and now the living room and entrance way. In the process we’ve been patching the walls, ripping up the horrible skirting boards, doing some rewiring (there was a switch on the wall that didn’t even go anywhere), relocating weirdly positioned power points (4 clustered together halfway up and right in the middle of a wall) and of course accumulating all sorts of different paint (primer, ceiling paint semi-gloss for skirting boards & windows, top coat for walls). And I thought that painting would just involve painting. Silly me. I can’t wait to get rid of the horrible green.
