I am sure it would be a really busy weekend for us here. We are planning to have our roof repainted starting tomorrow (maybe for about three days) if the two painters would be coming in. Our neighbor who had his house recently done referred me to the workers who did it and graciously made a list of what materials we will need. Early this morning I went to the hardware store where I usually get materials for our house repairs and such. It is nice to haggle a bit and talk to the proprietor of the store. Construction materials have certainly gone up. I got a good discount compared to the prices of paints and paints brushes which we previously inquired at the hardware section of a big mall here in our area.
Two years ago, my son and I repainted the walls of our bedrooms and parts of the dining area and kitchen. We just didn’t touch on the ceiling because the cornices have a different hue than the rest of the wall. Maybe if there is still time and if it fits the budget, I will have the ceiling retouched too. I enjoyed learning how to use a roller brush with a ready-mix paint. I have to search a previous post here to get the exact shade of the colors that we used before. This morning, I saw a can of clear furniture varnish and bought one and a small paint brush that I could use. Our dining set is made of narra wood so I thought of retouching and varnishing the chairs after cleaning them with soap and water. Mom said they are as good as new. I could not tackle varnishing the table because I could not lift the glass on my own. DIY is lots of fun if you don’t mind aching backs, dirty nails and fingers in the process.
I am looking forward to seeing Nate again tomorrow. They are coming over for a visit and Mom is excited to see him. I told my daughter to bring some food so I won’t have to labour in the kitchen for long. A busy weekend with the family too.
Have a nice and blessed weekend everyone!
