Hi, all is well just doing home renos, so, yeah, from all the paint fumes I am inhaling, I am dropped off the planet. a ha
Now, I know why the paint was on sale.
I am forever painting too.. I buy the one coat paint now, saves a lot of fucking around, all done quickly.. Skirting boards are a pain.. Three coats/four? I paint all the walls white fleece, which has some depth to it, its not just white, and has a nice neutral/greyish tone.. All the walls were eggshell before, too yellow for my liking.. Hate eggshell..
The problem was that I first bought semi-gloss, thinking it would be easy to clean, but forgot gloss shows every defect. So, that as a 2-coat job then we bought eggshell/matte and had to do another 1-coat over it, and it really looks 10x better.
These little mistakes are adding to the cost, labour and my temper.
The whitish-grey colour (white. grey and black are not really colours) is really the wall non-colour trend these days.
