Can you see the dust on the top of the chest of drawers? The joys of repairing drywall. The closed door is the closet. I have painted that. Dh just needs to put up the door frame and the baseboards in the closet, then I can finish painting in the closet.
Those step's are donkey's years old and are dropping to bits. They were my mam and dad's, so must be 27 years or more old. However I love them, and insist on using them when decorating.
I used over a full roll of masking tape, it took me longer to tape everything than it did to put the first coat of paint on the ceiling and walls. I am having to prime everything first as I am not 100% sure what paint they have used previously. Must say it looks suspiciously like a gloss finish. So to be on the safe side I am priming it. Took me less them 1 1/2 hours to prime the ceiling and the walls. Due to the high humidity though I have a fan going in the bedroom to make sure it dries okay.
I am painting the walls a pale beige colour called Light Sugar; I used the same paint in our bedroom and I had a can and a half lef, so figured I may as well use that.
We picked up a new fan/light the other day, so dh has to install that, plus he needs to change over all the sockets and light switches to white ones. I have to go out on Wednesday, so I want to pop into Solutions to see about the shelving for the closets. We have used their system before and it is well built and is worth every penny.
We had a nasty storm on Monday afternoon and it battered my poor gladioli. So I picked a few stems and brought them into the house.
I love this photo, the lemon and white is so pretty......click on it too enlarge it.
This red one is slightly different to the others, as it doesn't have a white tinge on it.
I love how the water drops are clinging to the pink petals.....
