The workshop has been completed assembly wise, so I visited the local paint shop for some paints.
I had this idea that I would buy a batch of small primary colours and mix my own.
Well this might sound fine in theory but I failed miserably in producing the colours I wanted to use.
However the primary colours, Blue roof and red drain pipes, ceiling white, and gloss white bits along with the timber floor finish and concrete effect paint went well.
The interior yellow was a fail in regard to me getting a good finish so it has been sanded back and will be repainted satin or similar beige or light tan.
As I worked away I was plagued with runs, even with blue masking tape. missed sections which were almost impossible to get to, drips and all sorts of other frustrating events, The whole painting task, thinking I could “just mix up the colours I wanted” painting small items was starting to send me bonkers.
The painting schedule
Anyway I pressed on and redid the bed lights,TV and ladder ready to fitup
That completes the blog construction wise, so I will go away and privately fix all the goofs and post Rockys Workshop as a completed project. with the hope it will look impressive then.
Thanks for droping by.
Oh I couldnt depart without sneaking in a couple of extra pictures
