What a week! Never again will I take on the job of painting my 2 bedroom apartment. I wanted to call this post "Paint, prints and problems". 1) I had forgotten how physically hard painting is. 2) It took three coats to cover the walls to my exacting (fussy) standard. 3) It is so humid here after a week of heavy rains that the removable adhesive hooks I bought won't stay on the wall. The wall plugs and hooks to hang the heavy artwork and frames won't grip the drywall properly (thanks Mr Hardware man for the recommendation) and I'm left with a lot of artwork still to hang. 4) I still have to put all the furniture back and clean up! At least I managed to paint up some new prints for my etsy store! Thank god I'm back to work tomorrow.
So what colour did I paint those walls? White. That's a close up in the centre (although looking at it you'd think it was grey bad photographer that I am). Renting in Australia is fraught with design dilemmas. Landlords must give you permission to paint and then it's a 99.99999999% chance that they will say only white. I wonder if they'll change the ugly carpet for me? Better get back to figuring out where all the paintings are going to go. Those colourful ones above are in the entrance hallway. One up several dozen to go. Wish me luck.
