Autumn Decorating Day 5 and 6

IMG_6786I guess reading these posts must be a little like watching paint dry. Heh. Heh.

IMG_6788Day 5 saw P and T continue the emulsion work as well as some woodwork undercoating and such like.

P was also working on the front elevation again. The front door and the black woodwork had taken a beating in the second round of renovations and also the garden work so P wanted to bring it up to scratch again. Undercoat following patching and filling.

Ha also repainted this window for me as it had been discoloured by the grinding out of the mortar for the repointing.

  1. Great Scott, great work. yes ‘the sweep of the ceiling’ just lovely. Calamine is perfect tone for the light. Gosh the Mayor – shall there be watercress/cucumber triangles?
