Update on the chairs. I've sanded and primed undercoated all six now.
I've painted two and am trying to find a suitable blue for the third. I've tried Laura Ashley's Eau de Nil, but it's too pale (I think, I've done a bit and am leaving it to dry). I've tried a F&B (can't remember which now) but it is also too pale. So I'm trying a Homebase matt colour, Iris.
'nother update later. Phew. I'm zonked.
