While some of you will have had Thanksgiving, and many of you have decorated your homes, and written more than one Christmas post, I am the lunatic who has decided to decorate my hall, stairs and landing AND the toilet in a cupboard, right at the end of November.......
because it's not Christmas yet !
The quatrefoil grille on the rad cover has to go, I really don't like it any more. The rather pink display on top, that went ages ago, it was just too pretty.
We originally painted the walls in a pale blue - that's gone.
About 10 years ago I did the woodwork in a cream then aged it with a glaze - that's gone too.
That horrible carpet - gone - I'm going to paint the lovely old floorboards.
My favourite part of the hall ? The hook on the end of the rad cover for Rufie's leads, it's neat and tidy and makes me smile every time I use it - that'll be staying !
The landing ? Well cleverly I never took any photos of it, but it's pretty much the same but with an old bannister rail !
What will the colours be ? Well there's a clue in one of the pictures.
What's left to do ? A second layer on the walls, the topcoat on all the woodwork, virtually all of the toilet, sanding all the floorboards, painting and sealing them and a few little surprises.
Then there's Christmas decs to do here and at the café - wish me luck !!!
