The mini face lift on the flat I mentioned back in December has been a fairly stress free process (minus an electrician that was left to his own devices and managed to install the old and dusty, 80's light fittings we had taken down - wow). First job on the list was to paint throughout, and we ended up choosing the lovely Wattyl Classic White. To my Sydney-based readers - take note of the business card above. You all know the benefits of a new coat of paint - and Bill impressed us with his super fair quote, super neat work, and getting in and out in two days. He's based in Burwood - but works all over the Northern Beaches as well. Another renovation rescue tip - as we are renting it out for a while, we ended up choosing more economical built in wardrobes from IKEA, but had them professionally installed by Michael at Get it Assembled. Say goodbye to IKEA-installing-rage for ever.
