Here’s a reminder of how the wall has looked since then. Yes, that is indeed been like that for eight whole months.
As I mentioned recently, we asked our shiny new decorator, Josh, to split the jobs we’d asked him to quote for into three parts, and he’s been busy doing the first (and cheapest!). And now the wall is completely black! Hurrah!
Our new wall is not only sleek and sexy, but it sports straight lines and a glossy newly painted bannister. Oh yes.
Josh has whizzed through quite a few of the “to-dos” on my depressing visual representation of all the jobs left to do: the kitchen post from way back in April – sanding and repainting the rest of the kitchen ceiling and walls, glossing the skirting boards, and painting the stairs wall, ceiling and handrail.
In fact, we’ve only got two jobs left on that list now – tile the kitchen walls and replace the switches with brushed silver ones. Both things that can wait a little bit, so I’m feeling a bit smug. I think I’ve got enough lists going on without that one anyway (do two things make a list?).
We’ve asked the decorator to come back in early January to do the next instalment (middle floor hallway/stairs up to our room/nursery), can’t wait!
