A pot of Homebase grey paint has been sitting in my D.I.Y cupboard since we moved in to the flat back in November. A rainy Saturday is all I needed to rescue it and give an old Argos pine trunk and a dull Ikea stepladder a new lease of life.
It turned out the hallway was a perfect pop-up studio for the task:
The adverse atmospheric conditions were showing no sign of improvement so I pushed the boat out and applied a primer as well as a second coat.
I’m reasonably pleased with the end result and would justify the uneven patches as intentional injections of shabby-chic in my hallway.
PS: please bear with me, I’m not quite there with WordPress…
