I had some white paint left from painting the toilet. The paint is plain white colour. I wasn't sure if the plain white would be good in the office so I wanted to try it first on a small area. I painted the top of one door which has cabinets on both sides, so the area I needed to paint is very small. It's close to the ceiling so I was also able to examine the paint colour next to the white ceiling.
I like the plain white. It's good, now I can use up the rest of the left over paint, but I also will need to buy more of it.
I don't know why it took so long but I finally disassembled the other shelf from the office so that I can paint the shelf and also the wall that was behind the shelf. Here is the before.
Of course I had to remove all the things from the shelf and pile the stuff in one corner in the office. I know already that the painting will take some time, so we need to live with the stuff piled in the corner for at least a week, probably even longer, not to even mention the other side of the office, which also has a shelf that I need to disassemble.
The weather has not been too good. If it had I would had most likely started with the shelf, since the drying time of the furniture paint is way longer than on wall paint. I need to sand the shelves and I want to do that outside. I hope the weather turnes nicer soon.
Also I've managed to take off rest of the rosy wallpaper from the big wall and I have spackled all the holes from the wall. There were quite a few holes.
There was also a picture of a girl scraped on the wall paper, I had to take a photo of it before I covered it with spackling paste, it was kind of cute. And in case you are wondering why I did not remove the stripy wall paper, I wrote a whole post about it some time ago, it can be found from here.
Now the redo of the office has finally truly begun. Prepare for a whole bunch of painting related posts.
