A Border Post

     Today began with a trip to Ovalworld, Blackburn, for another roll of paper, some more borders and a tub of border adhesive. Wouldn't you know it - I bought five rolls of border last week for a pound each, this week the same borders are on Manager's Special price at twenty pence each! So I got three more. The patterned paper is Graham and Brown Superfresco Colours range, pattern Splendor Red/Cream at £10.99 per roll, the borders are Arthouse Paparazzi, pattern Bellagio red.

I came home, hung the paper, put up a couple of lengths of the border, and spent the rest of the day filling in holes, sanding corners and varnishing edging strips. I also planed a quarter of an inch off the bottom of the door, then rehung it. I can't put the rest of the border up until the paper is dry. I've also ordered some walnut veneer to cover the fireplace.

Here's how things look now - and yet again, the flash on the camera is creating glare where none exists.
