Well, we have done some painting. It's hardly impressive, in that we have only painted one wall. Which was white. White.
But at least the damp patch is covered and there isn't flaking paint and plaster everywhere and hopefully we did it in such a way that the paint will actually stay on and not flake off. Primer.
And surely if it's that easy to paint a single wall it will be pretty easy to do the whole house, right? How hard can it be?
PS - Wash brushes in warm soapy water.
