Having painted the walls yesterday, our trusty chap, Gary, then proceeded to the woodwork. This is going to be in the same colour as the kitchen units, Neptune's Dove Grey. What you are seeing here is the undercoat, which is battleship grey.
The other thing that happened today was the arrival of the electrician to rig up some mechanism so that we could switch the Aga on. There's no power in this room at present. We waited with bated breath but he dutifully arrived at about 5pm and got us up and running with a plug.
Oh, and I forgot to say that the kitchen fitter came yesterday to survey the scene and take some final measurements.
It's all happening...
