I was so excited to get the first coat on, as there is nothing like getting the paint on the walls to feel like you are making progress!
Here we go...
I couldn't believe how olive green it looked when it first went on. I like it though :) The brush is also pretty special. It's a Purdy Monarch Elite. After reading loads of rave reviews about it, I stumped up the £10 investment (which for me on a paintbrush is a small fortune) for this bad boy. Oh my days, it's changed my life. What an amazing brush! Cutting in is just so easy. I wasn't particularly blown away when I first got it out the packet, the brush fibres didn't seem to be cut consistently, and it just looked like a normal brush. However, it's when you start loading the brush with paint, you see it's true beauty. I would highly recommend this brush.
Disclaimer: I have not been paid to say nice things about this brush. I bought it myself and just genuinely love it!
The paint was Dulux Endurance and it went on well. Two coats covered the walls very well.
Here is the progress shots:
Excuse my poor painting skills to the right of the corner in these shots, this was the last corner I did and I was tired by this point!
We put no protective coverings on the floor as they will all be coming up anyway. At least I hope so because we have trashed the carpet upstairs!
