front of house day: spring cleaning in the autumn

Postby ravanwin » Thu Sep 20, 2007 12:42 pm

a beautification of our old Forest. Cleaning, sorting furniture, hauling rubbish away. Making the place nice so we can fuck it up again, Wah-heeey!


<anyone>

Sept. 30th. 1pm - 7pm!

come and make us good.
forest will be closed that day.

That's a Sunday. Perfect. Not strictly cleaning but it would be nice to decide before-hand whether we want to sort out the office computers where they are, or knock the whole thing down and build a new one elsewhere.

Yes. I'd like to paint the floor down the stairs recreating the design that's already there, but just using black and white so it covers up all the shit. So it would be mostly black. I always liked the piano key stairs we had before, so I thought it might be an idea to do that again but with black keys, white sharp notes and some letterings on the keys.

How about painting it to look like it's covered in shit?

Like trampled soil with dead plants and mud running down it and the odd stray twig or bit of garbage or used condom.

ok:

called caldonian paints. they have some interesting facts.


You can buy floor paint or 2 part floor paint. the 2 part paint is more durable but also more expensive (would cost about £60 for downstairs). They only have black.

Now, here's the catch. They say it takes 2 - 3 days to "cure" which means that while the floor may appear dry in one day, IT is Not and should not be walked on.
The standard floor paint takes longer to dry, apparently.

so, what to do?

shall we paint last thing on sunday and then .... try our luck?

looks like we're looking about about £50 - £60 in costs. I need to know if we want the super durable stuff now though if you want me to order it.

thoughts concerns questions advice?

Silly me, I was only thinking about painting the downstairs toilet floors, one of my pet flaky paint hates. For the staircase we could paint alternate steps on different days and only long-legged people would be allowed/able to use them. Actually that might not be a completely crazy idea!
I would love to help tidy the workshop.

New vacuum was ordered today. And then this evening: a friend of mine went to pick up a vacuum from someone on freecycle! Gah.

What kind of brushes do we need? Where can we go for this stuff that isn't B&Q/Homebase?
