Some Things Are Best Left To The Experts

Things I have learnt today while ‘attempting’ to paint my bathroom…

When your other half suggests a tester pot before buying the actual paint, it is a good idea and should be done.Wearing your partner’s old clothes sexily does not work for anyone especially when they are not actually old clothes.

Baby wipes cannot be used as masking tape.

Paint can look different on the wall to what it does in the paint tin. So when you’re after a light colour and the colour could pass for black with the light off, you’ve made a BIG whoopsie.

Falling back into the bathtub can hurt.

Don’t think it will be ok because after painting for a few minutes you will decide that you hate it but have to pretend to like it so that you don’t hear ‘I told you so’.

The toilet seat can’t take my weight.

Coming down after 5 minutes of painting to google ‘how do you paint’ does not fill the other half with confidence.


Maybe asking the other half to take the radiator off before attempting to paint around it might be a clever idea.

Blue shows up in red hair.

Rollers are not as easy as they look to use, and neither are paint brushes.

Yes, today people have been one BIG FAIL.
