After a lot of umming and aahing , the curtain material was finally decided, thanks mainly to the wonderful lady at the paint shop who worked through several curtain / paint combinations.
Sunday afternoon was then spent painting. Pete did the high bits, Olivia did the low bits and I did what was left. The colour at first appeared too dark and I started to worry that I had made the wrong choice but as we went on it seemed to be lighter. It is a funny colour, it seemed to have an orange tinge to it, then as the day wore on and the room got darker it then appeared green.
