It all started with an impulse decision, facilitated by a practical ‘nothing to do’ situation with closing of swimming pools and the need for social distancing to protect self and others from the spread of virus.
But why something that I have never done before! There’s a reason, we just did a modification to the kitchen in our Bangalore house and the cabinets were polished.
The varnish job was done by the contractor with much ease and we were stunned by the simple job and the contracted amount.
The realisation that the job is simple and the regret of the feeling that probably we were duped by the disproportionate charges led to the idea of trying it out on the other wood furnishings in the house.
That’s how the ‘project polishing’ started. And now I have the satisfaction of acquiring a new skill. Of course, this also has given the opportunity to spend time in the lockdown scenario.
There’s however a small glitch! The varnish is used up and I can’t buy a new tin now. But there’s much wood when we get back home in Kochi.
Friends, try and learn a new skill now that we’re locked down.
