    I promised to get my daughters bedroom done in time for Christmas.....

    Running out of time, so thought I would skive today and paint the cupboard doors...but no...never that simple is it?

    I empty the cupboard and the whole inside needs doing so I still can't start the doors....why is it when you start a job, it always leads to another one...

    I love decorating, I was doing to whole house until my split up, things have been put on hold a bit

    I'm in Norfolk if you were close I'd get my Brush out and help you out, I'm damn good at DIY, well i've had 15 years experience as my ex was a lazy sod lol

    I'm sure you will get it sorted sara!

    Good luck! Love from Baz

    I don't mind decorating either...except I can't seem to find furniture in the colours I'm wanting.

    Not that it matters right now, since I couldn't afford it anyway, but I really do need a duvet.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Funny,but on clearing the cupboard I ended up throwing 4 duvet's down the tip! sorry MN

    I don't mind the decorating so much, its the prep that really pisses me off, particularly when you are trying to bodge round some very dodgy plaster.....

    Your plaster can move?
    Oh boy, this is much worse than we thought.

    Time to bring in the pros.

    I did manage to get my living room done in time for crimbo!


    Lots to sort yet, but I guess it will be in the new year for the rest of the house.
    as you say Sara preparation is everything but small jobs can become very large Jobs, at my old house down the beach the walls were full of salt, so fixing bulging plaster was a matter of removing everthing back to the flintwork, big job.
