Another house challenge (pt 2)

Onwards goes the bathroom project, only now if you can’t handle dust you’re not not allowed in my bathroom for the time being!

sanding polyfilla over drywall errorsApplying polyfilla, letting it dry and sanding it, is a process I have on repeat, like a broken record! My goal is a flattish seam. That’s right, you heard me: I’m no longer going for perfection. If there is a dimple here or a lump there, I’m just gonna chalk it up to 1960’s character. Besides which, knowing me, I’ll get bored of the colour I plan to paint it and will have an opportunity to make it that much better with new energy when that time comes in a few years for a repaint.
