decorating your house > in france

i’d wondered why the french only ever decorate the once – lifetime of house. they live with floral shite vinyl paper dating to the 50s and think it accepable. no fucking taste!

today i’m looking at paint – boring common white mat wall paint. in UK this would be about 10£ for 5L. So an unknown (who gives a shit) mark should be about the same price….. you’d think.

NO!

49.99€ (45£) for 5L ARE THEY FUCKING MAD???? It covers 12sqm….. worked out i’d need 7 and thats not doing the ceilings of the living room either………………… 3 4 9 € !!!!!!!!!!!!! seriously they can piss off! I’d be cheaper to return to UK by car and load up there even with petrol and autoroute charges.

PS that price was an ultra discount DIY store. Local store wanted 39€ for 2.5L (78€ for 5L)

fuck right off.

    What is it with the french and pink flowers? Just curious. It seems like anything I see that’s french is pink and overloaded with flowers…pink flowers…I love flowers but it seems its most often the most disgusting baby pink that can be found…just an observation I have made..I don’t understand. I guess the same can be said of us and they would probably want to know why everything is in earthtones and boring brown..

    Sorry about the paint to nookie. It’s expensive here if you want the GOOD paint but the cheap crap that practically scratches when you touch it is fairly affordable…the easiest thing would be to put up wood paneling and never have to paint again..:0)

    I wish you luck!
