More projects to come

After his roof painting task, hubby is bent on pursuing another long-time project of his – to improve a small space for our son’s bedroom. The lad is turning 13 this month and we realized that he needs space for himself. He and his sister are still sharing the same room and that’s the usual cause of their constant bickering. By having his own room, the big boy will have more space for his books, magazine, logo golf balls and other stuff that he doesn’t want to share with his sister.

Painting the roof green

We have saved a total of P4,800 or more than $100 for the gallons of paints (3 cans remain unopened) used for the painting of our roof. Hubby got the paints from the office. They were not actually free, but the total cost was deducted from his accumulated number of leaves. The good thing about it is that we didn’t shell out a single peso or scout for silver eagle prices for the painting job. Hubby did the painting all by himself. Great job, hon!

DIY Home Repair: Concrete floor painting

Hubby did a little floor painting yesterday. Our bedroom floor has some cracks and whitish mark all over and it doesn’t look good. Hubby brought a red elastomeric paint and covered the whole floor. But before he applied the paint, he mopped the floor and let it dry. The paint provides waterproof coating and hope it would lasts for three years or more. I’m planning to apply wax to make the newly painted floor sparkly clean. The whole painting job saves us less than $100 for floor renovation expenses. A floor repair is costly but thanks to my ever resourceful partner for coming up with the idea of simply applying a waterproof paint.
