    It wasn't easy as it was place under pressure and things were happening : FB_IMG_1536513296926.jpg FB_IMG_1536513321918.jpg
    Other trades damaging my work
    But by the end it turned okay.

    Thank you gentlemen...it would be perfect if the conditions on site will allow me working in peace...on day two AC crew started testing AC unit I had temp. fluctuations from 10 to 27℃ during scumbling...so can't really control what I was doing:cry:
    And by the end of the day one sparky started to walk on not fully dry worktops.:archieslap:I don't really like commercial jobs.

    nice job there . a couple of tips if i may ?
    tape up your runs after base-coat so you can drag right over the tape to avoid colour build up at the seams and it also gives you a nice line and defines the panel on things like octagonals , and do alternate panels remove before topcoat.

    using a laser level on a tripod as a guide when doing large areas for your brush .

    @Tehomas bow thank you.
    It will be done with no mistakes if I would be allowed to work on it for a week whiteout been disrupted.
    This place was a hell where everybody, all other trades were late on the dead line after which penalties 10.000 € per day or something like that was charged..I had a company of sparkies, chippies, plasterers, tilers, windows/doors installers available for my entertainment.
    In this location I also finished furniture an woodwork from my other post
    (The furniture was in need of more work but I wasn't allowed to do so)..
    For this gray units:
    I have three days to get it done if not
    my contractor would have payment issue as by the end of that week the hotel opened and in this room the Taoiseach (prime minister), had meetings with the hotel owners.

    I used one coat of Liquin Original by Winsor&Newton, worktops varnished afterwards with coat of Woodoc floor sealer.
    The air conditioning unit helped with drying:doff:

    Thank you for the compassion @Tehomas bow .You see no one was prepared for this or expect it...
    I wanted to be there with my work to harvest it for my port folio as it's well known worldwide 5 star hotel..
    It was such a disappointment..
    It was very alright money wise but my heart got broken...
    The quality of my work suffered but in this world more important is to get few milon of Euro for the wedding event than have a masterpiece in the spa or tea rooms.
