Watching paint dry

I’ve not been back to give an account of activity on the caravan – but suffice it to say life has been a constant round of sanding, filling, priming, undercoating and top-coating various bits of wood. Rust has been wire-brushed off wheels and black paint applied. Decorator’s caulk has been squirted all over the place and my hands are sore from abrasive surfaces, materials and solvents used to clean them up!
I have surfed the net to find out how to weatherproof OSB3 and have ahead of me the prospect of much dibbing and dabbing of primer/undercoat in all the little nooks and crannies (or crooks and grannies, as a friend is wont to say) before attacking it with the top coat of ‘buttercup fool’ (the modern equivalent of the literary ‘canary-colour’ – or, rather, the most my eye could stand!)
So be patient – the photos will come, but right now it would be literally a case of watching paint dry!


About apthomas

I love books, reading, writing, baking, chocolate, painting, sewing, people and fairtrade - not necessarily in that order. I am a lazy gardener - who loves the garden, and a lazy housewife who likes the place to be warm and welcoming. I live in beautiful Somerset. I am enslaved by Sherpa-the-cat. Saturday mornings find me 'playing shop' in the Honey Pot - a second hand bookshop, run from my garage, where along with the books you'll find fun, friendship and refreshments - all in a good cause.

    It sounds like it’s really starting to come together – very exciting. Be sure to give your hands some recovery time while the paint is drying. We can’t have you too sore to type when it’s time for the “big reveal!” đŸ™‚
