He’s in Milan

I’m in with the paint brush…

The storage nook in the craft room has been needing the ‘drip effect’ for quite some time:

Covering the ‘Accidental Lavender’ (the result of many partial pots of paint from other rooms all mixed up during the Great Magnolia Cover Up of 2005/6) takes two thin coats of cheap white and a top coat of a better quality white. 

Himself has had plenty of one night away work trips but I’ve been waiting for a two nighter to tackle this job. The upstairs hall landing and his office are, um, kinda stuffed. Time for another pass to weed things out for the Girl Guides. This sort of task is best done when you have no other distractions, am I right?

Second thin coat goes on later today and the final coat tomorrow morning, plus there’s these

in the back garden which need my attention. Power wash the old wood, seal the new, Somerset Green on them all. 

In for a penny….
