Firstly assemble all your equipment.
Mix the paint.
Feel happy, ‘it’s going to look nice’ J
Move the bed out from the wall and place precious hand painted lamp on the bed
Climb the ladder with can of paint and streaky effects brush in hand.
See Indigo our poodle, making a running jump from the doorway to her favourite snooze place, the center of the bed.
Pick up the broken lamp pieces.
Yell for ‘help to find glue’.
Thank helper, for glue and begin to repair, favourite lamp.
Feel happy. You’re going to be able to save the lamp.
SCREAM loudly, ‘HELP’ as it all begins to come unstuck
Finish painting the wall.
Paint the old étagère in special effects streaky greys and creams with mother of pearl, to match a set in bought wardrobe, opposite wall. J, I love painting ‘special effects’.
Return lamp to spot beside bed, remember to lock the dog out of the room next time I put delicate items on the bed.
Turn lamp on and enjoy the effect of the mother of pearl wall behind the lamp and the bed, and be pleased that all that fancy paint work in permanent enamels, I did to unify it into the colour scheme of my bedroom, helped hide all the repair work, just keep the lights dimmed and you would never know Thinking how well the silvery pipping trim on the lamp shade, works well with the mother of pearl wall behind the lamp.
Feel Very pleased with the work.
Think ‘I must write into my time management essays how work always has a tendency to expand into the time available and beyond if you don’t plan properly.
