Painting

Postby girlinleeds » Fri Nov 09, 2018 12:53 pm

I started with the side hall way and kitchen wall, we painted them yellow years ago and it was looking grubby so before I cleaned all the blue door paint of the floor decided to paint the walls with some magnolia I found in the loft (didn't take a before pic)

While painting kitchen decided the hallway stairs is really bad (think we decorated 13 years ago) it started of green on the bottom white on top you can just see the colour down the side of the book caseImage
Now the bottom is magnolia, top white wasn't sure but quite like it, it's only temporary as the celling is being replastered next year and will have to decorate/recarpet after that

Just need dh to unscrew the big bookcase from the wall and help me move it so I can do behind it but I think it looks better.
