huzzah for painting!
the small girl's bedroom has been transformed! gone are the ugly lemony yellow walls! gone is the dingy off-white woodwork! she now has clean, bright pale goldy-yellow walls and a slightly darker tint on the woodwork (needs to be light and warm because her bedroom has a small window and gets very little sun). we also bought butterfly (quite realistic) and flower fairy (the proper cecily mary barker kind) wallpaper cut-outs, and not_an_elf was quite gracious about the sudden girliness fo the room and hardly grumbled at all!
tomorrow we will traipse to burnie (closest spotlight outlet!), in search of curtains or curtain fabric, and a new rail, and maybe a light shade.
there are 540 eggs in the hallway.
