Today we have spent the day at home catching up on several jobs.
The Duke painted the ceiling of the bathroom and I did the edges of the cornices and also the new architraves on the window and doors. The ceiling is finished but the architraves need another coat. We have had the dehumidifier running in the bathroom for most of the day to get the paint thoroughly dry.
Here is a photo which shows the new lights and also the painted ceiling and window frame.
I also sorted out various things in the workshop and space under the stairs. Then it was time to list some things on Freecycle. Sometimes I do not have much success and other days everything is wanted. Today was a good day as I have found new homes for 3 small tins of paint, 2 spraycans of paint, a bathroom stool, the old showerscreen, some excess tiles from the laundry, tiling materials (adhesive, grout etc) and some timber slats. It is great that other people will be able to use them and we have freed up a bit of space.
We moved the cupboard that had previously been at the foot of the stairs and it is now ensconced in the workshop. All of the paint and painting equipment is now sorted and stored in the cupboard.
As is often the case, the re-arranging is a work in progress so is actually looking worse than when we started but that will soon change.
The showerscreen and mirror should be installed tomorrow so I am looking forward to that. It will mean that I can then replace all of my china and ornaments back on the sideboard. These were removed before the bathroom renovation so they would not be damaged when equipment was being brought in and out of the house. Things will soon be back to normal.
As Poppet would say, ‘what is normal?’
