Nearly four months after part of my bedroom ceiling collapse from a slow water leak, it has finally been repaired. The plasterer came about a 3 weeks ago and cut out the damaged section and installed a plasterboard to ceiling.

A week ago the painter arrived to paint entire ceiling with an oil-based paint and I still have a paint smell in the room -have used fans, left bucket of water to absorb the fumes and have sprayed room deodoriser to try and get rid of the smell of the paint and the room still smells of new paint. My son, Michael (a painter 🙂 suggests I put a heater in there as he tells me oil-based paint needs to harden before the smell diffusers.
