Painting

I mentioned in a post last week that I was doing some redecorating in my home. I don't really have much else to talk about so I figure I might as well talk about that. It was last Thursday when I went and bought Starry Night. I booked the day off of work because we were having some carpets installed. We were also supposed to have some hardwood put down in the hallway but unfortunately the floor tiles are so damaged we need to have someone fix that before we can put wood over them. Which sucks because my dad has been trying to correct the problem himself. First we couldn't get the kitchen done because they didn't want to fix the roof, now we can't get the floor done because they don't want to fix the floor. To be honest I'm not surprised people go for immigrant workers. A Pole could have done everything in the house for us by now.
Who's gonna make Britain "Great" Again?
Because they couldn't do the downstairs they were gone by midday. At least the landing looks pretty great now. It feels so soft too. The cats seem to like it too. Anyway, because they were gone, and I had so much free time, I decided I might as well finish painting the house. I painted it at some point last year but I gave up half way through. So for about a year only half of the hallway and landing has been painted. After accidentally buying the wrong paint I was finally able to get started. A few hours of hard work later and now a good portion of my house is blue. The landing is very blue, the hallways is pretty blue, and we even have a lighter blue set aside to paint the living room (where the carpet is also blue). About the only thing that isn't blue is my bedroom, which is still purple, and my cats, which brown, black, and white.

My hands were also blue for a time
It feels nice to fix the house up but it's so annoying how slow everything is moving. I don't know how long it'll take to get the hallway floor fixed. The kitchen roof still isn't fixed. I think my dad dislikes the idea of hiring handymen, but I suck at this shit and he's old and shouldn't really be doing this.

Bah if only I were rich.

  1. I hate DIY, I'm no good at it and I find it tedious. Same with gardening, can't stand it. As for decorating the house, after 14 years we still haven't gotten around to doing our bedroom. Other rooms have always taken precedence.

    If I could afford it I'd have a team come in and redo the entire house.

  2. Well, at least you now have nice blue walls!

  3. Congrats on accomplishing some home improvement.

    If there's a "Make Britain Great Again" movement, I hope you guys have better hats than we do. Although, to be honest, I get the feeling that the whole ball cap thing is only a ploy so that Trump's comb-over doesn't blow around when he's outdoors.

  8. That looks like a nice blue.

    I wish you weren't in another country, or I'd have someone really good to do your floors for a good price...

  9. It looks like you've been putting in a lot of hard work on this Mark. I know what you mean about how it being slow moving can suck, but when it's done it'll be done and you'll be pretty damn proud of it, that can't be a bad thing.
