- finished the first coat on the skirting (let it dry)
- sanded the skirting, door frame and window frame
- repainted all of the above
I know this isn't the greatest picture, but there are others here
I think one of the reason the project had stalled, apart from the factors mentioned above, was that the water based high gloss that we bought was really looking very crap after the first coat. So crap in fact, that I didn't think is was ever going to look any good. This took the wind out of my sails a bit. Anyway, I was determined to finish with it today, and I did. I worked out straight away why it is you do a second coat, it looked way better. I think the end look will now be ok. Maybe I won't even have to get the oil based one for the other darker blue?!??! I'll decide when I get to Bunnings tomorrow.
