Painting and decorating in Kilburn.

The original idea for this 2 bedroom house was to repaint the walls, the ceilings and all of the woodwork. We expected some stripping and repair of the wall paper in the lounge, but, as it turned out, things wouldn’t be quite as straight forward. When we started stripping we uncovered no less than 6 layers of old wall paper. Most of these layers had been painted with waterproof paints, which made soaking them off impossible. Even the steamer had no chance.

So before any painting and decorating work could get started at this place in Kilburn, London NW6, we had to painstakingly remove the paper by hand. This meant in places we scraped our way forward inch by inch.

To make matter worse, the walls underneath all this paper were in a much worse condition than we expected. Initially we had planned to put on a light skim and then sand, but this had to be done twice before we could paint.

Luckily the other rooms were solid and didn’t offer much of a challenge.
