The Grey Room...Painted!

how are you all?
this afternoon the sky outside looks
as grey as the room
we've mr w and mr m have been painting!

remember the room

all scraped back!

mr w applying the undercoat...
we wanted to keep the grey as light as possible,
no existing colour bleeding through.

on with the grey...complex grey..half strength
{by berger}

complex grey is a grey which like its name states..
has many colours in it,
not just a whitened black!

two coats later...

mr w has moved in
and finally this morning
i took these pictures...
and he brought up his favourite bed lamp upstairs
for the occasion
{and made the bed for me!}

it is slowly being organised...
but then again rome wasn't built in a day.

kara loves the bedroom too!
by half past eight every night she's snoozing in it...

she is wondering why
we wouldn't let her off the bed...
{'cos we wanted to take her picture}

she was happily sitting there...
and before we could take her pic
she leapt off onto the floor.
 she was ordered back on the bed
but it just confused her!
she is eager to please though...he!he!

well i won't win 'the decorator of the month' award
with these pics
but what do you expect
from a boys' room in occupation...
i should have taken photos when it was first set up!
i didn't even think about it then.

i hope you're having a grey't day...
well, sunnier actually!
