The weather has been awful recently and the mood in our household, as we are counting down until my other half is made redundant, is pretty grim. Constant job hunting, calculating finances etc is pretty urghhh. So trying to stick with the attitude of "must go on/we won't be beaten" I started looking at my kitchen walls as you do. Hhhhhm shall I decorate the kitchen hmmmmm.
We have lived in this house for 13 months now and the kitchen is RED not our choice. And whilst we have got used to it it would never be our choice of colour. The red is OK during the summer and on sunny days but when its dark and cold (most of the time) you feel like you need the lights on in there all the time.
So yes I have started and it is going to take some time as I have a little helper. Today I managed to sand the skirting boards. Don't expect a finished post soon.
