One thing that has bugged me since I bought the Barony St John is the floor as you enter the hall building. It’s a dull red colour, cracked in many places with a black border around the edge. The paint is peeling in some places and it badly needs repainting.
So, in between classes, I decided to paint it.
I opted for grey as that is the colour of the adjoining kitchen floor.
Now the entrance to the hall is the only lockable entrance and exit to the hall building so I began by painting half of it – leaving a walkway so I could come and go without walking on the fresh paint.
The net day, I came in to find footprints all over my floor – someone had been in despite me warning everyone that the floor was painted.
The next day I came in to find someone had walked on it again – I was livid. So mad in fact that I forgot to take a photo to show you the footprint (or rather the skid mark) of whoever had walked on my floor.
No-one admitted doing it (although I’ve since caught the culprit responsible for the first set of footprints.
A touch-up of the skid area, the crack and the entrance to the kitchen area was required….but this left the floor in two different shades of grey.
Hopefully you’ll agree though that the finished results were worth the effort. The entrance looks brighter and cleaner than before.
Another job done. 🙂
