Well I hate to say it, but i think we have a painting hoodoo…
On our last few projects the painting has been our loose wheels. Previously it was bad workmanship and a rushed ‘botched up’ finished job, leaving never ending touch ups. This time is a different story but it appears the painting is once again our loose wheels 😦
Don’t get me wrong, this time around there is nothing wrong with the workmanship of our painters at The Lover Dreamer Beach House. They have done an amazing job so far and the quality of their work has been excellent. The painter has been pretty slow and he is very particular but he has done a very good job. Our problem = white. Alabaster to be exact. It just won’t cover!!! We are up to 3 coats and it’s coverage still isn’t great.
This is the first time we have painted such a white interior. We were warned about this when we chose the paint colour, so it isn’t too much of a surprise. Unfortunately it means – another coat throughout the entire interior = more time + more money! Haha… the joys of building.
We feel like we have been very organised with this project, but with any build or reno there is always going to be things which are out of your control which you have to accept and budget for.
Oh well, in a week or so (let’s hope) i’ll be able to show you our beautiful white Alabaster, well covered painted walls.
