No, it wasn't me. I loathe painting, and am very bad at it, mostly because I can't be bothered to do it properly. All that sanding, and priming, and filling in holes, all that brush cleaning, and all that actual painting too! Awful.
So a real painter did it for me, in eggshell. I chose the colour - not that this is the colour I thought it would be, you know. I find that I've chosen a real old-lady pinky-cream. And I find that I really like it.
Next: the rest of the orange knotty pine is getting painted: two small chests of drawers and the bed headboard. The bedspread will move to the guest bedroom, which needs a bit of a splash of colour, to be replaced with something plainer for my bed; not sure what* yet. But Lottie needs it just now.
* lovely cashmere throw, delicious jewel-coloured velvet quilt, vintage patchwork, ruched silk? You must be kidding. Something that can get chucked in the washing machine every week - at least two cats will share it with me!
The light is gloomy in there today - it's snowing.
Well, of course it's snowing - on Tuesday my sister is coming to stay - first time she'll have seen the cottage. Hopefully, she'll have less trouble arriving than the last time she decided on a winter visit to me, but my fingers are crossed already.
