Redecorating via The Spectrum

Oh look!
It's 2 minutes past the witching hour and moi is still awake!
"Midnight, one more night without sleepin'
Watchin', till the morning comes creepin'
Green door, what's that secret you're keepin'?"

C'mon, you know the words!
If old age has poked holes in your grey matter you can cheat and slip over here and do a quick refresher.
You're welcome for the ear-worm *insert wicked laughter*

Meanwhile....things are somewhat quieter here, that could be that Feral Aspie Teen has taken onboard tools to help him connect with his emotions (something that most Auties/Aspies have difficulty with).
Or he's just run out of plaster walls to batter.
Or his parents singing operas of Prisoner (the tv series) has traumatised the poor possum into silence *snort*

We're thinking outside the square to repair the walls....was going to go with wood panelling (Helloooooo, mid-1970s style!) but I'm thinking more corrugated iron....decorated steel mesh....stainless steel....industrial look....
Annnnd then we have the hard rubbish drive happening in the next month or so around these parts...
I'm just sayin'.
Recycling...reusing....saving moolah....saving those poor hard rubbish collectors from injuring their backs....

I hear retro is in, go with the wood paneling! :)

Go with a nice cinder block wall and give it a good inch or two of cement render. Painted to look like whatever surface you'd prefer. It'll keep the heat out in summer and the cold out in winter. And it's fireproof. So no worries next bushfire season. And you won't have to patch walls anymore. Just knuckles.

Whatever's easiest to keep clean! :)

Ah, the wonderful time of Hard Rubbish.
Ours is staggered now, with people booking whenever they are ready. Not as much fun.
Good luck with the remodel, make your decision based upon what you find!

Recycling is always great... but I agree with Lizbeth, go for wood paneling :)
