Following the scratch coat on the laths, we have repaired all the cracks in the ceiling and washed down the ceiling and walls.

The ceiling has now nearly had 2 coats of paint (painted by Daniel, Iona, Chris Accola (Prince’s Foundation) and myself), and is looking amazing.

The final wall colour has been chosen (see attached photo – we’ve gone for the one on the left – the colours are the Pennington Race Horse colours from days of old… ) and the paint has arrived today. More news from this project next week, as we have laid up the float coat of lime plaster today.
