A start on the painting

The new house needs a good paint inside, not sure if it has ever had a repaint in the 12 years since it was built!
And there are also some interesting colours!
The boys rooms are this horrid gold/orange colour!

The uni students room even has this "feature" wall as you walk in - comes with a royal blue shelf as well!
I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

So we have started in this room, is now a nice green/blue colour. My attempts to have it painted a nice neutral beige fell on deaf ears and this was his choice of colour. 

It does look really nice now all the woodwork has been painted white. A new bed is on order and some white blinds......and I think it will look really nice. Well ...........when we get rid of the parquetry flooring and get the carpet laid lol.......but that won't be until all the bedrooms are painted.
Trainer Tim's bedroom is next on the agenda.....but not until September when we have some leave from work.

Take care,

A new coat of paint makes a huge difference. You must have loved painting over that yellow.

Oh what a lot of work; but, worth it in the end. I have been looking around here and thinking I should have someone in to paint the inside. I bet it's been 10 years.

Hi Anita
I want to paint one of our girls rooms that nice turquoise colour. I think coffee and chocolate browns would go nicely with it. I need to hunt down a nice quilt/doona cover so I can coordinate the colours. Soon, soon!

Cheers, Joolz xx
