Finally.

After 6 yrs of staring at it.

Yes. I did it.

I've been meaning to do it.

Yes. I finally put some filler in that crack....

I'm staying at a door that needs vanishing. Promised the joiner I would do it straight away.... :innocent:

There's a length of not-yet-fitted skirting board propped up in the corner of our living room. It's been there so long that I don't even notice it any more.


However, it's suddenly wearing a tinsel scarf this week. When I asked Mrs Womble why, she said "well I would have done it last year, only there was a massive spider's web between it and the wall, that I didn't want to disturb"........ :innocent:

Lol at Mrs W, like her style. :roflanim:

I have had 8 new doors in my hall for about 8 months.  They have a base coat and I have the paint and the brush.  "I'll do it over the winter' I told my joiner.  I didn't say which winnter, but I'll try to it before I die  :eyelashes:

Never paint new doors or skirtings... those that do use finish coats of gloss... and thats bad news when it comes to repainting.. all that sanding, keying, two new coats etc. No. Doors and skirtings best done just with some stain - quick to do, if gets really mucky then scrub with sugarsoap and another quick coat.
All part of my lazy approach to house painting.. stained doors contrast nicely with only use white emulsion for walls and ceilings (cheapest option and no cutting in)

My lazy tip for interior painted wood-work (if one must paint it at all): use one of those "washable" emulsion paints. It's good for quite a few years!

I have doors to varnish, I have done about eight, was not happy with the varnish, so two years later I still have six left to do.
  Its either too hot, the dogs moulting, its too dusty, or I have run out of time. I really must do it :roflanim:

After 29 years of failing to get all the tiles on the bathroom walls we changed the suite and put in a shower.  A nice man tiled the walls at the same time.

Anyone want to buy a reasonalble amount of cheap tiles?
