Sometimes...

There is no stopping DB. I happened to mention that the conservatory is looking a little drab (it was last decorated 2002) and as we thought we'd have some paint leftover from the dining room door, wouldn't it be nice to use it up in the conservatory. I meant sometime!

A test patch was painted and left to dry overnight to check for colour:

Next morning he was off! I quickly grabbed the camera to take some shots of the old conservatory but he had already started moving things:


Next thing I know, he had taken up both old carpets, the largest of which is destined for the sleeping quarter's of our grand-dogs at night. He was putting painter's masking tape and newspaper up in strategic places. It felt a little like winding him up and pointing him in the right direction.

 

The next day, I donned painting clothes and he his overalls, and we both set to painting. More next time!

    1. I've always wanted one but they take up too much room and also have nowhere to put one!

  2. Ah, the dreaded running machine. We have one too. Will it ever get out of our conservatory and run back to his brother's house where it belongs, I wonder? xx

  4. Great idea to use up the leftover paint. Will you be having carpet on the floor again?

    1. We though so too! We had bought two tubs of paint but are going to take the other one back for a refund. Yes, we have got some more carpet tiles to put down.
