This morning the kitchen looked like this,
and we were ready to paint. So we got out the brushes and rollers and applied the first coat and it now looks like this,
and I hate it: it's too blue, it's too dark, it's just wrong. So now were off to swap the second tin for a different colour and brand. I knew I shouldn't have eschewed Farrow and Ball for the cheaper, by ten squids a tin, store's own brand but... Anyway, we'll get the shelves while we're out so all is not lost.
