The past twenty four hours has been one of activity in the dining room. All that good paint I bought from Jewsons has been applied, except for the trim gloss which will have to wait a few days (it stinks and we are having house guests on Monday night!)
It has all been very satisfying. There is no doubt that Dulux Trade paint is exceptional. And good Harris brushes and rollers make the work flow (pun!) efficiently. I would guess that preparation and clean up take about 75% of the total time, so if you just like to paint this can become a costly experience (brushes can be cleaned and in fact they get better with use).
So, once the gloss trim is on, where to next? The guest bedroom beckons.
