Episode 113- recognisable renovation progress

First of all, apologies for quality of these shots and the last two posts from France. My phone camera is not focusing properly (they looked fine on my tiny screen)

Shame as we achieved quite  a lot in the salon.

Chalky washes over rough lime plaster & hints of stone behind- shades of soft straw, ceiling pale straw so no line between it and walls (my own mixes) pelmet Liberon lime-waxed. First art work up

I’ll take my good camera next month… still before & after (pretty obvious)

    Your own mixes? So we can’t run out and get paint just like that? It’s so pretty.


    • Yes. and room is twice as bright, maybe even thrice
      Could not find right colours and finish so mixed it up with ochre pigments and trade emulsion that has fewer nasty plastic binders. Ochre very typical colour for Languedoc, though usually darker and more mustardy than my pastel version!.
      two layers of paint and two water based waxes
