I have been preparing the walls and ceiling in the kitchen which I will paint before MM installs the kitchen cupboards.
Most of the blue wall will be covered with the wall cupboards so I have painted the area below that will be covered with a splash-back. I still haven’t decided between a glass or stone splash-back but in the event I go with the glass I didn’t want the blue to show through. To cover the blue I have used a white primer base coat adding a few drops of black turning it slightly grey. I will do the same with the blue wall in the family room and purple wall in one of the bedrooms, then use a white top coat. This ensures the dark colour doesn’t come through. All the walls will be painted tiger white.
MM has completed the electrical work in the kitchen and our sparky Ron Ortiz has been in to check over MM’s work and install the electrical wiring for the stove which MM was not comfortable doing.
Keeping a tidy work area and the tools organised makes life that much easier.
“Is that a bottle of tomato sauce?” you ask. “Yes.” I answer. Why? I’m a Kiwi, we put tomato sauce on everything…. Actually, it’s my just in case sauce. Just in case I feel like a pie and chips for smoko. I refuse to buy those pathetic little sauce packets some vendors charge you an arm, leg and first-born for.
A quick trip around the yard to inspect the mango tree. It’s going to be a bumper crop this year. YUM!
