Toilet Renovation Day 2

Well, today is actually painting of the copper pipe on the same toilet which was renovated yesterday.

Since Copper Pipe can be easily rust or corrosive, I had to go to the Market and grab one small can of Glossy Paint to give the Copper Pipe one protective layer.

I was hoping for a even smaller can, but this is the smallest the shop can offer which cost SGD$ 17 and  SGD$2 for the paint brush. Don't ask me why I grab a Nippon Paint brush with a Dulux Paint, I just ask the shop which is better and what they can advice and offer.

With the stuffs I needed, of course I headed home while grabbing some bite in between to start the painting.

So let take a little peek at what and how I paint the copper pipe.

Some Food and Snacks to bite on before the painting and during the breaks. I do need some energy to start off.

Dip and remove some excess paint before painting, or there will many drop of paint on the floor. Well, the newspaper is there on the floor to stop them.

Start Painting!!

It did take me some time even for a short pipe. And even with a small can of paint, I only use a little bit of it even when I did 2 times recoat.

Finished! Just need to wait for it to dry and the toilet is free to use again.

Interestingly, this glossy paint is very nice, especially when it dry, the texture is smooth and nice. Well, time to take a break and bite some snacks~
