The Renovation Game Channel 4

Recommended Posts

I'm watching this right now. Anyone ever seen it? What a bunch of fucking cowboys. Recommending sealing new plaster with pva prior to painting. Painting wet plaster. Painting a nice piano pink. I wouldn't let these clowns in my shed, never mind my house. Idiots.

Well. The object of the piss poor exercise appears to be to increase the value of the property. This bunch failed to do that, thereby restoring a little credibility to the show. But only a little. The female designer in charge of the tart up even stated it was the best finish they'd ever achieved. Silly cow. You can see for yourselves here, if you like. But don't go out of your way.

You have to seal new plaster don't you? Usually with 'pissy' paint?

 

I prefer to use water myself but I suppose with your old bladder.... ; )) It's called a mist coat.

Adverts adverts and then some more adverts. I used to like Homes under the hammer and I'm partial to the odd bit of country house rescue but The renovation game is a load of ald rubbish, although it has just given me an idea about how to get the house painted.....

 

That piano didn't look 'all of that' but you need to hear them to judge, if they did that to our piano I would plant them upside down in the pond. And another thing...that looked more like lino than laminate in the kitchen.

That is what I say, people still back away though.
