There is nothing that changes the look of a space like colour! It can transform a space from darb to glam in a minute without breaking the bank!
My latest paint job was at the dining room area in our new abode. I encountered several challenges in this paint job. Challenges i have never before experienced. First, i was using Dura Coat brand of paint which i have never used before (Maybe I should have called the Marangi Team). The brush i was using broke just as i was starting out, i decided i could try using a roller brush but that only complicated matters as i ended up with two different shades of colour.
After 3 days i completed the job. Tell me why you think?
I got 2 litters of Dura Coat’s Tri Clover (Viynl Silk) at a cost of Ksh1,200, the brush Ksh350 and the labour cost was love!
The nails on the brush became loose and it separated from the wooden section. I had to get the little nails and put the two sections together. But before that i had tried to use a roller brush and the shades on the wall looked completely different. I had to stick to one tool and that was the brush.
I was happy with the final result. I also managed to get some accessories from Nakumatt Select- the green mats at the bottom and the salt and pepper holder on the console. The painting i got from Zanzibar, the console from Ngong Road and the candle guys from masaai market.
What do you think?
Keep it DIY!
