Painting again....

{image from here}

It seems like only yesterday we were painting some part of the house. Yesterday was spent applying base paint to the kitchen cupboards and this afternoon I will be applying the second coat.

I find this stage rather boring and will be happier when I can dip my new brush into my lovely brand new can of Farrow and Ball "Old White" oil eggshell.

Yesterday the dishwasher arrived and I adore it, so sleek, shiny and new. I am enjoying my stainless stage hence the fridge, oven and dishwasher are all stainless steel.

Love mixing modern with old hence the antique oak table, chairs, chandelier etc.

Still lots to do, Mr FF will be working on the window seat over the weekend and I will be painting the walls and ceiling.

I am looking forward to the "furniture placing stage" as I have bought a few lovely pieces that are standing unloved and lonely at the garage of our other house.

Hence we will be working this weekend.

What are you doing this weekend?/Que faites-vous ce week-end ?

  2. I'm so looking forward to some images of this gorgeous kitchen. I'm like you - I hate the primer part of any painting project and also long to get to the 'real' paint stage. It is sounding so fabulous Leeann!

  4. Leeann, sounds like things are really coming along for you. I'm quite excited to see how it all turns out. Good luck with painting the cupboards - how can you go wrong with Farrow and Ball paints?!!

  6. Zita, after spending the afternoon painting with my new F&B favourite colour I could not agree more. That said our house is looking a lot like a showroom for F&B :-)

    Promise to share lots of photos just as soon as I get a chance to take some.....

  7. I usually need a pot of coffee to get me through the boring parts and onto the real fun. It sounds so exciting though to imagine brand new stainless appliances and gorgeous paint colors! Happy upcoming weekend! ~Lili

  10. I agree - base coats so boring but necessary!! Great choice on the colour - so love F and B's Old White... friends of ours did their kitchen cupboards in this colour and it looked amazing. x
