Here are some photos of the room we painted over the long weekend.
It is very clean and white. I love it. The books are not in order yet on the shelves you see above as when you spend your work day lumping books around, you don't really feel like it when you get home....
Those shelves were also painted. They were raw timber: we bought them from a neighbour's garage sale seven years ago ($10) and I just wiped them down and filled them at the time but they looked pretty nasty.
The top two were from my old family home. The D'oyly John print was an engagement present my parents received in 1959.
The letter/bills holder I've put out there for the teens' mail as they pass it on the way to their rooms.
It hung up in my grandmother's little flat for decades.
That bottom painting I bought in an op-shop years ago, for thirty dollars. I'm convinced it's going to be revealed as an early work by a major talent some day...
Went to see Silver linings playbook today. It was a great movie with wonderful performances.
Hard to adequately explain a movie plot which incorporates football, mental illness, a bit of romance and a dance competition. Should come with a bit of a trigger warning - one of my movie companions who has struggled with personal issues over the last year found it close to home and found the portrayl of illness by Bradley Cooper a bit too confronting and real. Many tears afterwards.
