Well there is nothing wrong with cream, until it curdles. I have been busy painting the Sid Cooke house, all the woodwork and all the odd bits of furniture I intend for this house in the same shade of Dulux Subtle Ivory 4 that I used to redecorate my front room.
I have papered the upstairs room but simply painted the downstairs as I intend to have a feature wall at the back.
This was meant to be a quick in and out 'dress' house but I think I may have a problem that will be a real nuisance to sort out. This house came ready built and primed off ebay. I decided to give it a coat of Gesso primer before painting with the Dulux satinwood. This may be a big mistake as I think the satinwood has reacted in some way with the gesso and my satinwood feels very tacky and is very glossy. Not the look I wanted at all.
I think I am going to have to leave it alone for a couple of days. Let it all dry and harden completely then have a look and decide what to do.
I can concentrate on the skirtings, LED lights and the roof.........Hmmmmm, quick project?
The top room is going to be the guest bedroom. The room I have always fantasised about. The room that is always perfectly tidy and dust free. The room that says, "I could always come in here and just sit and read a book." The room where the bed linen does not have a single paw print.
The room that hides my shoe collection!!
So I Have had to buy a couple of pairs of shoes to hide under the bed.
At the Kensington Festival I was so pleased to see an Italian lady whose work I had previously seen at Miniatura a few years ago, Patrizia Santi
I really wanted a pair of her adorable Ugg boots but had to settle for these gorgeous ballerina flats that I would definitely wear in real life. They are so beautifully made and delicate.
I have the perfect cupboard for this room's miniature shoes bought for Diagon Alley but now surplus to requirements, now where's that cream paint!!
