What comes to your mind when you think about getting your home painted ?
Awesome Idea, but too time-consuming.

Finding good painters and deciding what color suits your home, as per your requirement.
Well, let me give me you all some good news. Painting home is no more a worry, In fact it has become faster, cleaner and better with Express Painting by Berger.
Last Saturday on 10th Dec,2016 I had attended #BergerXP Indiblogger Meet at The Lalit Ashok, Bengaluru. Too be honest, I had gone to meet my blogger friends and have some fun. I love Indiblogger meets as they know how to make your day special. I returned home not only with smiles, gifts, new friends, vouchers and photos but also with lot of useful information related to painting home.
By the time we reached the venue, we were all hungry. Firstly, we all had lunch. This time I made sure to read labels and eat Veg. Lol! I enjoyed eating Gulab Jamun as it was too yummy and also it my favorite sweet dish.
After lunch, the event kick started with a small warm up session by Karthik which was no less than a laughter session! We also had Foot balloon Bursting activity. The activity was to tie the balloon to our feet. Destroy others balloon and make sure to save our balloon from bursting. Haha! I was so busy in bursting others balloon that I didn’t notice that somebody had already busted my balloon. (P.S. I was not able to burst even a single balloon.)

We also had two more fun events related to painting. Each team had 5 members. Being the captain, I had chosen my cool blogger buddies (Ajay, Reema, Ramya and Anvitha) for my team and we named it as #RekhaKiSena.
The first task was sanding. We had to sandpaper a block of wood coated in white and make it uniform and smooth. Our face were covered with mask, we were given hand gloves and surgical cap. I felt like a doctor operating a patient. Last time, when my home was getting painted I had seen painters doing this task. I used to think, that this task is so easy until I had actually tried it. We took 2 mins 31 seconds to complete the task. It was neither too difficult nor too easy!
Second task was to paint on a canvas. Out of the choices given we selected the theme, “Incredible Colors of India”. Before we actually started painting we were given information about primers, paints and different painting equipment required while painting home. Chandranath Banerjee explained us the process of mixing primer, paint and water which I didn’t understand at all. We were given twenty minutes to finish the task. For the first five minutes we were discussing the idea. And the last fifteen minutes made me realize that painting is not my cup of tea. Somehow, we completed our painting and it was not that bad!
The event came to an end with the group picture and yes we also took the #MannequinChallenge which was really fun!
Thank you Indiblogger for organizing such awesome meets! Proud to an Indiblogger Fan.
