Small steps and hot French finds

Little bits done this week. Finished laying terre cuite hearth in salon, edging next. Also finally decided on floor finish for wet/cooker wall in kitchen.

Whilst loading said option, I spotted this chaux (lime) based natural paint in Brico-Depot in some lovely soft colours. That will save me a lot of mixing various paint cocktails in the future to achieve the finish I want. Shame I only have two rooms left to do.

Photos probably not good but here you are-the chaux is top right on board

    Actually, it isn’t exactly paint. Enduit is for filling holes or cracks. But this looks like a coating that would give a kind of chalky/lime finish. Did they explain it?
