A day later was when my back went ping and that was the end of the decorating plans for last week.
So this week, using a step ladder in the middle of the floor and a chair for other bits which is the only way to reach everything, I got started by filling a hairline crack in the ceiling and then got the paint out. (Dulux Bathroom colour Timeless- in case you are interested!)
To reach the deep sides and top of the window recess means climbing over the basin and loo and sitting on the window sill. Managed that OK and did the fiddly bits behind the loo and basin.
That was enough for day one, I want to get it all done by the last weekend of the month so plenty of time and no point in overdoing it and aggravating my back.
Last year when I painted the living room you got a blow by blow account! (I was quite chuffed to do a whole room myself as in the past Colin did most of the decorating while I did the small bits and the fetching and carrying! ) but I don't need to do a day by day description because I got the rest done all in one day. I didn't really mean to but had it done all except one wall in a couple of hours so thought I might as well press on to a finish.
Here's the new walk in shower, all nice a tidy. I'm still marveling at the fact that there was exactly the right number of wall tiles spare in the garage to add two rows to what were there to bring it up to shower height!

Clearing everything up and getting it all downstairs, cleaned and back into the garage took nearly as long.
The next room to do ............but not until September at the earliest............... will be the big bedroom. It's a weird pink/biscuity colour at the moment and I have a bad feeling it might take two coats to cover it.
