Girl Power – Top Tip

July 20, 2008 at 8:22 am Leave a comment

There’s always something in the house that needs to be fixed, decorated, plastered, rip out, tidied, but it just seems like too big a job on your own.

Top tip – A couple of friends of mine and I have come up with an idea to get a bit of work done around our houses.  Rather than battle away slowly on a job or not even start the job, we get together and tackle the job as a team.

Girl Power

It was my turn first.
I have a room in my house destined to become my Wallstory Murals office.
The walls were in a terrible condition, and needed to be replastered. A big job to do on my own.
The girls came in and within less than a day we had replastered the walls in a rough textured effect. (I’m going for a rustic look as we don’t quite have those finer skills in plastering) It looks wonderful.

Next it’s Louisa’s turn. She is turning a small outhouse she has into her furniture painting workshop. We have a floor to lay there, and between the three of us we should be able to lay it in a day.

So here’s my tip for the day. Get together with a small group of close friends and agree to help each other out with jobs you can’t face tackling on your own. It could be anything. Decorating your child’s room, clearing a patch of garden, tidying out a garage, clearing a mountain of ironing. Whatever the job is, a team of friends can make light work of it.

It’s fun too because you have to stop for lunch and a glass of wine!
