Yesterday, Brad the painter, came and started the living room ceiling. Poor guy had sore shoulders and worn out fingers from filing all the hundreds of tiny nail holes. Then today he came back and sanded and painted it all.
I am so happy with how it looks now. So much better than I thought it would.
It cost us $650 including paint, of which we still have about 7 litres left. Hopefully enough to finish upstairs.
Money well spent I think!
