This was a corner of the kitchen on Saturday night.
After much umming and arring and negotiation, when we left there yesterday the wall behind the radiator was painted with it's first coat of green. Now I know why I call my Lovely Hubby my Lovely Hubby .... the man has lots of patience he'll do anything I ask of him, but then it works in reverse and I do the same for him, it's called love :-)
There was lots of prep work needed in the kitchen and it was still being done just before we opened the paint pots. It's funny when you view a house things look so neat and tidy and well presented, but when you get down to the nitty gritty you find all the botch jobs, all the loose plasterwork and all those things that you know you have to put right as you find them or they'll just get left much longer than they should be left or you won't get round to doing them at all. Which is why we're doing everything that needs doing NOW, before we move in fully, because the way the timing is going when we do move in it will be time to really set to with planting and organising things outside if we want to continue to feed ourselves.
So the kitchen is almost finished, just the second coat of the second green wall to do, and already we can see it's going to look fantastic. I can't wait to set to this week with packing up lots of things that will be being put into the kitchen cupboards and onto my lovely new shelves when we go back next weekend.
While LH was painting downstairs I was busy upstairs painting round all the door frames while the doors are away being dipped, next week we will paint the walls and ceiling of this landing area and then work our way down the stairs.
The end is in sight thank goodness, did I ever mention that ... I HATE PAINTING !!
