22.03.2011 – ceiling painting woes

I finally did it. I bit the bullet, unearthed the paint roller, and gave the ceiling another coat. I’m not happy, though, because despite not having a high ceiling, having bought a good quality roller, an extension pole with a soft foam grip for sore hands, and good Dulux emulsion, it turned out to be rather patchy. I just don’t have the strength and my arms got very sore, which means that the roller kept slipping and sliding over the surface instead of rolling properly. Bleh. So I employed the walk – groan – curse – reload paint roller with paint – walk – groan curse method till I was done. Sadly, it means I need yet another base coat before I can put the light reflecting one on. Double-bleh. Och well.

 

P.S. Ich bin gar nicht zufrieden mit der Decke. Trotz Spezial Geraeten und guter Farbe ist alles fleckig. Ich habe einfach nicht die Kraft, der Roller ist immer nur ueber die Flaeche gerutscht, weil ich nicht genug andruecken konnte damit es richtig rollt, und mein Arm tat weh, das Handgelenk auch, und so weiter und so fort. Sehr aergerlich, ich war ganz schoen stinkig gestern abend. Das heisst ich muss noch mal streichen, bevore ich die endgueltige Farbe (ein Licht reflektierendes Reinweiss) drauftun kann.
