Ahhhhhh it was mega excitement all round The rope lighting is fantastic. I now have a whole host of ideas what i can do with this stuff *roll on christmas* I still have a long way to go with the build in terms of filling/sanding, but popped to B&Q after work this evening to pick up some colour swatches. I just cannot decide what to go for on the main wall. Originally i was thinking mid-dark brown on the main wall, but we already have 3 rooms with brown and a hallway with browns. I'm all browned out I really like the following colours, but like i say i'm a long way off choosing colours just yet so will no doubt have a few more restless nights sleeping on these colours. Red Stallion, Night Jewels, Indian Ivy, Cocoa Blush. The other three walls would be painted with a much lighter colour. Something like antique white, egyptian cotton. **** I sound like Linda Barker or is it Anna Ryder Richardson?
