Well….the painter hasn’t been back yet. A mixture of him being called out to other jobs and then me coming down chronic gastro Sunday morning early and having to cancel him. Said gastro also resulted in me at the docs after 8 hours of vomiting and waiting for it to "pass". The Son decided enough was enough, fair enough too, I’m a noisy porcelain bus driver and she was a trooper. So a needle in the butt for me. Seems this blog’s about my butt at the moment, for those of you that know me in the flesh, you know I have enough butt to go around. So another week waiting, waiting.

This is what the crafty space is looking like in all it’s evening glory. See the green patch, that’s going to be the whole room. Flat acrylic so no shiny green snot here. I’m a little scared but am going through with the green. Kiwi Fruit here I come.


Spud’s getting used to new furniture, here he is testing the new sofa. See the glowing orange in the background. That was meant to be a flat acrylic….however long story short painter didn’t tell me until after he’d bought the paint and painted the wall that this base doesn’t come in a flat acrylic. So after a weekend of hating and then not minding the low sheen we’ve decided we can live with the low sheen. For those of you interested, Dulux Orange Wood. It wraps around to the dining room.


I’ll leave you with a very blurry night shot of the dining room chairs.


Here’s to a painted crafty space…

    Oh. My. Goodness.
    I am laughing so hard that all these wild colors are bleeding into one anyway! Glad you are feeling better.

    That looks like an Ikea bookcase. (Hard to tell from a photo of course.) I have two and I love them! Right now they’re in pieces as we had constructed them in our finished basement and they were way to big for the movers to get up the stairs! I can’t wait to get’em all back together and put my fabric back in the cubbies. 🙂

    I love love love that great color for the walls. It’s great. You are brave. I was brave too. When I had my house in San Francisco, I painted the whole living room that color. I loved it. Have fun.
