The brown has been banished!

Hurrah, all signs of brown varnish have been eliminated from my hallway. It hasn’t been easy with a toddler running around. Wet paint, no stairgates and no stair carpet (with exposed grippers) has not been a recipe for easy living!

We still have a bit to do but I thought you might like to see some photos of the progress. But before we get to that. Here are some reminders of that lovely varnish…

And here it is all lightened up with white woodwork and off white and grey emulsion.



We have still got quite a bit to do – new lighting, tile cleaning, a cushion for the window seat, shelving to provide extra storage. I am very excited that a grey carpet is due to be fitted on Friday. I cannot wait. In fact, I may just hang out on the stairs on Friday night with a bottle of wine!

We also intend to paint the door in Arsenic – a lovely Farrow and Ball shade – to give the room a good pop of colour. Doesn’t it look lovely next to grey?
