It’s salon..g way home

Trust me this is progress.
French salon all painted now, including skirtings; apart from front wall (undercoated only)
Trevor hates rollers so both parts of ceiling done with brush.
Don’t think he will be waving his arms in the air for a few days now…


Above you can  see vile sapele doors.  These are  concealing a deep inset cupboard with terrazzo shelves and original lime plaster. Although these doors have protected our wardrobe come pantry come  linen store from builders and rubble and dust they are coming off very soon .
Apart from being vile they interfere with main door to stairs!
We have a beautiful reclaimed wooden Georgian frame to mount here that came off a near identical original inset cupboard in  the West Country. Trev will make the slight adjustments and this will set off our open cupboard perfectly.
Can’t wait

    Wow. Clean. Tidy. Things match. I have been living so long wedged between boxes and detritus that I had forgotten what that looks like. Some day….
