So, we have painted, washed, wiped, cleaned, painted and painted.
First room up is Hannah's room.
First design disaster: every darn thing in the house was the same colour. The wall tiles, doorknobs, toilet seat, architraves, trim, doors, splashback, floor tiles, carpet, bathtub and shower stall. Yucky beige.
We've painted the living room (still painting and trying to decide on furniture and artwork so not quite ready for reveal yet).. and Hannah's room.
It feels wonderful that there is now ONE room 90% completed.
(Still have to paint the doors and window trim)
Secret: I've NEVER held a roller brush before. And only paintbrushes to furniture and craft. So family were shocked that I'd chosen a very strong colour. But I stuck to my guns... and after two coats of Chilled Wine (a purply red) by Haymes Paint:
I actually love this room. Everytime I pass the room in the hallway, the warmth invites me in. :)
