Life here at the Manor tends to follow a pattern.
I drift through the day, doing various bits and bobs and even grabbing the odd doze. It’s quiet. That’s the way I like it.
But life is fucking chaos at the moment.
Yesterday the painters arrived to do the kitchen, and do the kitchen they did. Everything was covered in paint – all the cupboard doors which included the fridge and freezer. So last night I spent my time getting stuck to the knobs every time I wanted something. And then of course I would touch something else and would have to clean off the trail of fingerprints I had left.
This morning they came back again. Everything they had painted that was nearly dry, they painted again. Once more I can’t touch anything without getting stuck to it. Then the nurse arrived in the middle of it all. And the groceries are due any minute. And Daughter wanted me to pick up Grandson the Younger from school. I had to renegue on the last unfortunately.
Now the painters want a website. Each. Two websites. Could I set them up?
No problem. Except that in payment they want to paint the house. All of it. Outside walls, garage door, fine.
But they want to do the walls inside too.
I won’t be able to move without sticking to something.
Appalling! Is this alkyd or acrylic paint?
Alkyd tougher for kitchen & etc. Like old oil based paint, turpentine solvent.
Did they use primer/undercoat, after sanding back the original?
Do they even sand (wet & dry wet in finer grades on cupboard doors, at least!) between coats?
Walls likely in water based acrylic.
Do they really seem like they know what they're doing?
Is their roller on wall technique random or ordered in grids or cells, keeping a wet edge alive?
Buyer beware! ;=}))
Gloss on top of some kind of undercoat. I ain't getting more technical than that. The smell off it all is making me hallucinate though. It is really strong despite open windows and doors.
Just think, you could have the entire manor the same color inside and out. Unless the painters are using different colors oer item(s)?
