Anyway, I recently decided to take advantage of some things, including my own copious amounts of free time. Which may be coming to an end, but this is just what happens when you decide to use something. It goes away pretty bucking quickly. Well the title of the post should give you some idea of what I got up to. Actually the job isn't complete yet but I've just been melting in this sun. Which was also part of the reason I did the job but more on that in a second.
Following the great success that painting my room (albeit with Jessica's help) was, I decided a while back I would paint some of the rest of this house. Pretty much every wall in this house needs covering in something and paint is easier. It's something I can do at least. I kept putting it off, and putting it off, and putting it off but I finally got around to asking my dad to fund this and getting it done. Over the course of two days I was able to paint the stairway (I managed to strain my right wrist doing that somehow) and half of the hallway. It might not sound like much to you but I assure you it was. I went through two massive tubs of paint. Although one was spilled onto the carpet...
It's a really good blue colour and it gets me all excited because there's something I didn't realise until after I finished applying a lot of it. It is this colour;
|I assure you it looks MUCH better now. This was taken when it was wet and it lightened up as it dried.|
|Both the shade of blue it is, and my reaction to this realisation.|
What isn't so awesome? Having to finish the job. Oh and to clarify why it being so hot was one of the reasons I did this in the first place. That would be because I painted without a shirt on and was happy to take any excuse to not wear a shirt. It was so damn hot I conquered my body issues.
