Paint Fumes

The meeting with the estate agent went well, he gave us some good advice (don't move until we can afford to keep this flat and rent it out) and I didn't torture him with cleaning products. A win-win by all accounts.

Whatever happens this flat remains our home for at least another year, so we decided to redecorate our bathroom which I've never liked, especially the weird blue paint job that we rushed two years ago.

The Ours arrived home with copious paint testers that we liberally smeared all over the walls; and then realised that none of them worked, so we're back to the drawing board on that one.

No matter. The resulting fumes triggered a euphoria that still remains and I'm convinced my editing today will be the most productive yet.

I'd better get to it then...

OMG, Yvonne, make sure you read it back when you come back down, won't you?

LOL so were you productive or were you drawing pretty clouds?

Hope you find a good colour :)

Yvonne said...

Econgirl, I like it - creative euphoria in a handy, portable form!

JJ, it seems to make sense so far, perhaps a little on the excitable side...;)

M&T, I was actually sensible for once and painted boring, ordinary stripes. The high came later ;)

I love paint samples. Maybe I should get some to help me get on with my edit.

Glad it all went well with the estate agent though.

Angie said...

Toxic yes, but there's something enticing about the smell of paint...oh, that's just me then?
Hope the editing goes well and it's not too excitable. ;)

Yvonne said...

Debs, thanks! I recommend them...

Angie, I love the smell of paint too, and petrol - I always stick my head out the window for a good sniff at the petrol station!

Tester pots or not we always fall back on good old Magnolia.

Magnolia is our friend.

I think your fumes are getting to me...

OMG, I love the smell of petrol too! It always reminds me of summer's at the lake, oddly enough since the ski boats emit the smell.
How funny. :)
