The Red Wall

So following on from my awesome saturday I had a interesting Sunday. I had maybe the scariest driving lesson ever in some CRAZY fog.

But first lets back track to friday morning at 8.10am

I got the early bus (the one i should get to get to work on time but never make it)

I picked up a Dulux booklet thing and thought ooohhh pretty.

We had discussed putting wallpaper up but my dad kinda talked us out of it, wall prep, etc etc so i had a bee in my bonnet buzz buzz.


So i forwarded the above photo to Rob at lunch time, and said can we paint tonight.

He said i dont want to but you can! Oh ok then!

So i talked him into taking me to B&Q


he talked me into getting pricey paint, coz the 2 coat stuff we didnt last time was a paint.

FYI this Once stuff is worth its weight in gold!


So back to sunday morning, whilst Heather  had to help herself to breakfast me and Rob moved some furniture.


So 2 hours later im back from my lesson and tape up the plugs, Rob had long since gone to work and Heather nearly home.


For some reason i only had about 2 feet of manoeuvring room so yes it was tricky

But look it was pretty, It was such a dark day i had to have loads of lights on.


It started it get a bit 'fumey' so i opened the door a little and before i knew it i had a visitor

Well actually i didnt know it i may have jumped a absolute mile!



I got super messy.

But it was done!


Now i just had to sit and wait for rob to get home to help me move all the furniture back.




After we had removed the tape i had to do loads of tiny touch up bits which pretty much finished me off.

But LOOK





We love it LOADS, its super cosy and i cant wait to put the tree up and it be super cosy.

Think it was about 9.30 i got to sit and knit!


So super productive super awesome weekend!

Now tomorrow i shall tell you what i am doing this weekend!

Thanks for calling by
