One of the jobs we had been meaning to do but putting off since we moved in 4 years ago was painting the ceiling in the kitchen/dinning room. At one stage this now large room was 4 small rooms and a corridor but one of the previous owners opened it all up and now it is about 48 square metres. However they left all the original panelling in place and just capped where the walls had been. It was soooo gross with about 20+ years of grime built up, holes where lights had been removed and relocated, layers of paint showing through (aqua ceiling anyone) as well as mud wasp nests dotted about the room.
|Ewwwww yuck note the mud wasp nest on the beam|
|Not sure when there was last a light in this spot.|
The cutting in took another whole day because of all the panels which resulted in more sore shoulders. But we could see straight away the difference it was going to make.
The end result is fantastic and makes such a difference.
It was a lot of hard work with lots of puttying and fix ups and we still have to replace the light fittings but I am glad to be able to cross this one off "The List".
What's been going on at your place?
