Got myself a book about me (Ox) in the year of the Pig. Don't look so goodlah. I discovered that renovating in the South West is not good for me - Lucky I did my renovations before Chinese New Year! I painted a fuschia feature wall in the living room and the bedroom apple green. I know, right?
Pig Year is not so good for a few of us. Including hubby boo who is a Pig, and myself. However, being a believer in all things mystical, I have decided to hearken to my Star Sign forecast for the year instead, which is a whole lot better (Virgo rools!)
According to my astrological forecast, 2007 will be a year of big change for me. Woohoo!
So I am thinking the dull terracotta backsplash tiles in the kitchen need a revamp. I'm seeing whites, blues, maybe lots of steel. Anyone know where to get tile primer paint in this country? Ask any hardware store personnel (I have asked two) and they seem very perplexed. Unless "primer" has a different word here. Or maybe I just got the dud staff members.
Or I could completely rip out the tiles and put in a lovely mosaic. However, my DIY aspirations don't factor in the time it takes me to complete such work (I like my tea-breaks). And with two kids, I need the kitchen to be usable again within a day, maybe two. And paying someone to do it when I could use that money to pay my overdue car bills seems a little untimely. So paint it is. I'm also thinking the bleh brown cupboards need paint too.
I also finally fixed my sewing machine and find I have nothing to do with it. Might try making some dresses for the girls, freehand! I mean, make my own pattern and see it I can actually get it to fit them.
