The turquoise on the kitchen wall has gone, almost hidden under two coats of white paint.
Everywhere else had just had the first coat of white done when I took these photos on Monday night. But I've not been able to get back to the annexe since as I am currently completely out of action with a bad back. Struggling to get in the car on Monday to go and see the start of the decorating was a bad idea as Alan had to make an emergency stop at one of the roundabouts on the way to the house and the resulting jolt has put me back by about two days ... OUCH!!
Oh, and the blue of the bedroom had also had two coats and was very well hidden.
It was good to go and see it all, and I can't wait to get back when I am able to because by tonight all the painting should be done.
And they might even have my bedroom feature wall wallpapered.
It took a lot of choosing to finally get to this Laura Ashley design, but I'm happy with my final choice, and luckily with my ceiling being so low and the room so small I only needed two rolls. One of which will hardly be used so I have lots of ideas for the remainder of it. 😃
Debby asked about the oil recommended by our joiner and it turned out it was Linseed Oil that he recommended for the raw wood of the new doors.
As you can see from this test strip that Alan did on the edge of the door it darkens the wood slightly and also brings out the grain nicely, as well as protecting it from fingerprints and minor stains. It should also help the doors fit in more with my lovely old pieces of furniture that will be at the annexe in the very near future.
And talking of old pieces ... I have two lovely pieces of furniture currently cluttering up the hallway here at the flat, one large and one small. I'll try and get a photo of them and give you a little peak at my bargains of the year. I love them 💖
