Not much to blog about...or is there?
This week I finally decided that I really have to paint the walls in the apt. Specially the dining area since they look pretty yellow & haven't been painted in yrs. That's a whole nother subject. arrrrrgh! The truth is...in my own little opinion in my little world of mine, I don't think that the the tenants should paint the apt. (Welcome to our culture differences) The landlord should do it or hire someone to do it. Painting is not in my vocabulary yet. I have spent too much fixing & painting our house before we sold it to relocate & trust me, moving into an apt where I HAVE to do the work is no fun.
First of all who builts a flat w/ some soft walls & some TEXTURED. The textured walls are AWFULL to paint & you can get hurt (scrape) your hands & any part of your body as soon as you touch it. These textured walls are the worst to paint. Dust collects in all the holes & or creases. I only plan on giving it 1coat. Mind you, only one coat applies to the soft walls NOT the textured!!!! I found this out on Tuesday night!!!! AUUUUGGHH!!!
It's going to take days maybe even weeks to paint the hallways, entry ways, dining area & the kitchen. Problem is...once u have put some white paint you have to give it more coats cuz it's yellow of dirt. Yah..a small piece pf wall took me
2 1/2hrs to paint. & that was only 1 coat. It sucks the paint in like nobody's business. But, I have to say it looks clean...well alittle bit. Major difference.
I'm glad I'm not having Andre's b-day party till next Sat. Maybe I will have 2 walls painted by then. & that is it!!! It bugs me everytime I look at it. I MUST FINISH IT & PRONTO!!! Well that's my life in a nutshell. Hasta la vista readers of mine!!
