Before showing you the three rooms on this floor, I just want to add a little bit to the stuff I wrote about doing the trims in a room a few posts ago. When I do the coving that wraps round the chimney breast I make that as a 'finished' wrap-around piece. That way I can get it as good as I can before it goes in place because I think that these coving joins are the ones that show up the most in a room.
I glue the pieces together on a right-angled jig to make the corners as good as I can.

With that in place the dining room is pretty much done - as I said I want a subtle and thin ceiling rose like the one in the sitting room for this room before I fix the light in place for real.
So, here are the three rooms on the ground floor waiting to be filled.
|Entrance Vestibule - remember there is an inner hall and stairs beyond the door at the back|
|The Sitting Room|
I am so excited to be moving upstairs and starting on the (largish) Music Room and a small Library.
