Paint every weekend

last weekend was the 3rd weekend in a row that found me with paint brush in hand, this time it was my craft room.

dont mind the mess, i had been cleaning out heaps of stuff & putting it up on Freecycle. well that will account for a little of the mess the rest well it has pretty much been a work in progress since we moved in, when was that again oh yes 2 years ago.
our whole house is/was painted 3 colours, pink in the main bedroom, mauve in the bath & toilet & yellow in every other room, needless to say i am not a fan of yellow any more.

it took me until lunch time on the friday to empty the room, boy do i ever have a lot of stuff.

by friday night the ceiling was finished & one coat on the walls,[ but not this colour]
but what colour you might ask, well you will have to wait till tomorrow night to find out. ok maybe a little clue it is a cool colour & goes well with red.

every thursday i have been buying 1 or 2 tins of paint i plan on painting every weekend until i am through the whole house or until im too tired out & will need a rest.

Good grief is it 2 years already! I had a massive clean out in my study/sewing/junk room too but I didn't get rid of it, I just hid it somewhere else. ;-) You never know when you might need all those fabric scraps and wool ends.

I was just about to say that greenfumb - I couldn't believe it's been two years either. Doesn't time fly when you're having fun!

I'm going to guess the colour you've picked is green, as that goes really well with red, but also because I think I can see a sample pot in one of the photos. ;)

Could be wrong, but anyway, have fun painting! :)
