My wedding was just around the corner and with all the hustle and bustle of planning a wedding, bae and I were looking for a good place to rent because I definitely did not want to move into his bachelor pad.
We both had aspects of the house that we were particular about. As the resident foodie and cook, I wanted to have a very spacious kitchen that also had a store and my husband was keener about every room being ensuite with enough parking space for the two of us. As you can imagine, it was difficult finding a house that we both loved.
Finally, after 4 months of house hunting, it was looking like we were not going to get any place we would both like anytime soon until we got a call from our agent saying he found a place around Surulere that would suit both our needs.
We went to check it the next day and the house was like a breath of fresh air because it had everything we both had been searching for. The only issue we had with it was the painting; everywhere was painted in cream colour. This certainly did not work with our personalities, but luckily it was fixable.
As soon as we paid for the rent, the next thing on our agenda was to look for a painter to paint the house. I love the way my sister-in-law painted her own house, so I called her to tell me the paint she used.
She said her painter, Yusuf, was the one that bought all the materials used to paint the house. I got in touch with Yusuf and he told me that he buys all his paints from Sandtex always and that’s the brand he trusts to deliver on everything he needs.
Initially, I was worried we would not find any unique colour that we would like because I like playing around with colours. However, Yusuf advised that I should come along with him to the Sandtex Experience Centre so I can pick the exact colour I want.
To my surprise, their catalogue contained so many colours, I couldn’t believe it. They even told me that they can create any colour I like if I did not find any colour I wanted in their catalogue. So far, I have not had any problem with the walls flaking or discolouration.
Sandtex has been my go-to brand for anything painting ever since, and now with my baby on the way, I already know I would not have any problem painting the nursery because I have Sandtex.
