Paint Covers a Multitude of Sins...

A builder friend of mine always says a coat of paint shows up all the imperfections that need filling or sanding.  I reckon that may be true, but even a really poorly-plastered wall looks better for that coat of paint...

one coat on wall to kitchen

...I rest my case.

Tomorrow it will get a second coat - the other walls have already had two coats - and then I will move in those bookcases!

Yesterday evening I finished the red and blue socks, which I like very much.  I don't know if Molly will want them (they may not even fit her now) but I reckon I could sell them on Folksy...

Patriotic socks, close

It's good to have some knitting or crochet on the go to relax me after a hard day's painting!

I totally agree, a freshen up with a coat of paint is always an improvement no matter what the state of the walls underneath.

That was some well-deserved knitting! Lovely colors on both wall and socks.
