Princess Genevieve), although I think the deadline is actually before then, because my parents are coming to stay in the week beforehand (not sure when) and I'm currently sleeping in my spare room.
Today is a public holiday in Australia - Anzac Day - so this morning I sealed/primed/undercoated the bare plaster wall in my room today. That needs 2 days at least to dry and cure before I can paint over it. This afternoon, once the shops opened, I went to Spotlight to get some fabrics for the Plain Spoken quilt and also to check out curtain options for my bedroom. I found some good fabric choices and I think I've made a decision on the pole/track dilemma. Then I headed for Bunnings to buy this paint. (Antique White USA and Garden Pond in case you're wondering).
