We're redecorating the main bedroom.  Before David replaced the skirtings, there was just a small dowling type edging along the floor.   A similar finish was on the windows and as you can see he has made lovely architraves and a small sill around the windows.  He has also made timber pelmets (still to go up) to go over the blinds.  Ceiling and wall down to the picture rail have been painted in white.   All timber - windows, pelmets, skirting, picture rail and door have been painted in white gloss.

He is now in the process of painting the walls.  We hummed and hawed for ages on the colour and because we have decided to only have the blinds on the windows, thus allowing the stain glass to be seen in all its glory, we finally went for a colour with a bit of green in it.  We just love, love the colour.

Will post picture when all finished.  Probably one more coat to go on walls.


  1. Connie your room is looking great. David's done a lovely job. Isn't it surprising how those little touches add so much.
    (The awnings outside also add a touch of romance......) 🎀
