Johnlo Piconet – the fabulous painter!

Well this weekend has gone by in a flash really! I asked if it was ok to paint the bedroom on Friday to get rid of the ghastly and oppressive blue-ness, it was so on Saturday morning I went to B&Q to buy some paint, brushes, whit spirit etc. (£24).

The instant I got back I opened up the paint and started brushing it onto the walls with great sighs of relief – yay – no more blue! I’ve chosen what is described as Mellow Mocha – which is basically a coffee colour – very milky coffee. I like it – it is a lot like the colour of my bedroom back in Devon – so it can make me feel at home too.

By 1pm I had finished the first coat – looked very patchy due to oppressive blue behind, so off to B&Q to get another pot of paint and a roller set this time! (£13).

Quick lunch break here – I met up with Sanna and we went to the Mosque kitchen, which basically serves curry, Midday – 7pm every day. It was so cheap and so tasty. Definitely a place to go again. We then went shopping for a bit – getting Sanna a new belt – before we headed to Costa for a coffee and a chinwag. We made arrangements to meet on Sunday for the end of festival Fireworks too.

Back to the flat and I rollered on the second coat before settling down to watch a couple of episodes of Firefly before bed. I was up early on Sunday to start the glosswork – which also looks terrible with the blue behind – so a second coat is required for that too! I shall have to wait until I get home from work tomorrow to do the second coat, so I touched up the coving with some white emulsion. I don’t think I’ll have the bedroom back proper until Tuesday evening at the earliest – it WILL be worth it though!
