    From the house with the horrible flaking cornice.

    @Waynetta Sweet as a nut, I say sweet as a nut! :doff:
    A very nice change to see a colour on the frames as opposed to folks usual choice of white.

    Xvlp on ceiling cornice only. Rest brush and roller. Cheers

    Too many but customer happily paid the extra. 15 days and the ceilings alone took 5 days although some prep on walls between filler drying. Top landing had new cornice fitted but all corner joins were poor and the mouldings left a bit to be desired so lots of filling there. Also the new plastered walls had absolutely loads of hairline cracks to rake and fill.

    Dark colour is Knoxville gray. Almost dark green in some light. Love that one.
    Top colour is Edgecombe gray. All Aura Matt. First time I’ve used Aura on architrave and skirting. Well impressed.

    Nearly broke me :scared:. Wire brush and 1” filler knife flicking the scabby bits. Not a pleasant job and had to stop myself getting too fussy as would have ended up stripping the lot and being there another couple days of hell.

    You did well, a lot of hard graft in there and the end result makes it all worth while. One too be proud of :thumbup:.
