Long story short, a friend of my dads said he would paint my dads place as a kind gesture since my dad has helped him out a lot by giving him money when he needed it and a place to stay etc.
It's fvcking awful, my phone ran out of battery before I even got to the really bad bits but the light switches, mirrors, cupboards, light fittings, floors are all covered in paint.
The actual horror bit is in the other rooms which have the ceiling, walls and skirting board all in different colours so it looks a right mess at all of the boarders.
My dad is clearly pretty upset so I told him that I would repaint and touch up all the rough areas once my exams are done this week.
Only thing I'm worried about is how to remove all the paint from the inside of the light fitting and switches and its on there pretty hard now.
Use a wallpaper scraper to gently scratch the paint off the fittings, it usually flakes off pretty easily. Just go steady with it.
If I'm gentle enough it shouldn't scratch the glass round the windows and mirrors right?
I reckon it will take me longer to fix this than it would have taken to mask it all up and paint it properly
He also messed up the exterior of surgery. The wood is really old on the ledge there (about 300 years) so rotten. Rather than sawing it off before he painted and repaired it, he painted everything but the rotten ledge. Then sawed off the ledge, got sawdust everywhere on the freshly painted bits which are still wet before painting it all over again.
Looks terrible up close.
