Cleaning up the kitchen counter was FUNNNNNNNNN...until someone pointed out i was splashing water into the power socket :(
All cleaned!!! (kitchen cabinet still not installed yet at this point)
Look...our stainless steel railing that i stubbornly insist on buying from Ikea. And it has proven to be sooooooooo useful until now. I use it to hang pots, slicer, colanders, etc. I know i keep mentioning that i STUBBORNLY or ADAMANTLY insist on buying some thing. But see how useful my stubbornness turned out to be??? see??? men.....tsk tsk
Oh this plate dryer thingy....which is also useful! using it till now and still not a single sign of rust
Aha! here c omes the pain in the arse job...painting! Spent days looking at the paint catalogue
but before painting, there's the cleaning up of the house to do. The AMOUNT of dust and debris collected from the renovation of 2 bathrooms and one kitchen...aitelyuuuuuuuuuuu...
I remember it was a long weekend, so we
Sponge brush...gone are the days when you use paintbrush to paint houses. I was a little skeptical about these sponge thingy but boy were they useful. Not only do you not have to worry about stray bristles sticking to the wall, or leaving bristle marks on the walls or dripping paint but we used a lot less paint too
and and...they were much easier to clean than paint brushes
prepping the kitchen for painting. I painted the wall while someone did the ceiling and couldnt look down for the next 2 days
Prove that i worked!
Oh! First meal in the house! heeheehee
My so-called "feature wall" in the living hall
Kitchen walls done...nice n clean!
As evening draws near...turned on the lights and admired my work :)
It's time for our first night in our new house. Said hello to my comforter that has been shrink-wrapped for more than a month
First night spent sleeping on roll-out mattresses on the floor. I had to admit i got a little "home sick" at this point :( I was scolding myself...dont be stupid! thats not even your house..THIS is your home!
So we both had to suck it up and sleep with the heavy smell of paint and still a layer of dust covering the floors
Next day...ran out of old newspapers and someone bought that day's newspaper to line the floors! I was nagging at him...that's so wasteful! So I was reading the papers off the floor while painting...lol
Lunch on 2nd day...cup noodles! lol
Gosh...the painting seemed like it would never end at this point of time! My arms ached, my legs ached, my neck ached...ARGHHH!!!
And to top it all off, we still had to sleep on the floor! There's my iPad lulling me to sleep...lol
Third day! I painted the master bedroom...chose this taupe color that is lighter than the living area feature wall
Trying to be artsy fartsy with photos...
