More progress today, with my two fantastic helpers! We painted two of the large walls brilliant white ~ the height of them is really emphasised now, as are the lovely old wood rafters and joists in the ceiling.
After much debate, we decided to leave the wall that is already painted black ~ it’s a seductively dramatic counterpoint to the old red brick, and white walls. Plus, everyone who visited commented on how nice my artwork looks against the black.
I am considering making it midnight blue instead, to soften it a little. We’ll see.
