I'm in...almost

I've spent the past few days (read: week) painting my new studio...

It was a very disappointing and frustrating experience too, because the paint I bought (a popular brand) was AWFUL!! Six litres of paint just wasn't enough.

A sealer-undercoat and three top coats later and it still wasn't right. Truly AWFUL!
Not only an expensive experience, the main thing is that it was such a waste of time. Instead of it taking me two days to finish the room, it took six! I've contacted the paint manufacturer to express my disappointment with their product. It'll be interesting to see if they respond.....

Anyway... here she is...

After I purchased some more paint and applied the final coat, I started filling the cupboards

The cupboard doors still need painting but they can wait...

Also...I got this little gem at a garage sale a couple of years ago...

MONT's been using it as a bit of a work horse

But yesterday he removed the blocks of wood on top...took to it with the metal brush and gave it a spray coat of anti rust black paint.

I'm going to use it as a temporary sewing table...until I get my long table after Christmas

A little more painting to do on the arch's and skirting boards etc..but that'll be done next weekend

What do you think?


  1. It's looking great and I love the floor you have chosen. You must be getting quite excited about moving in to your new work space. xx

  2. That's really irritating about the paint, interesting to see what sort of response you get from the company. The room looks great though, nice floor :)

  3. Lookoing good! How cute is that table? I have been looking out for one of those for a hall table.
    Pity about the paint - do tell us what they say, if anything.

  4. I scrolled through a few posts to see how things were progressing - looks fabulous - I look forward to the next installment!



I love to hear your thoughts.
