Facelift

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

The east wall of the house has had a badly needed makeover. A previous decorator, for reasons known only to himself, had painted the decorative brickwork. I suspect it started off as mistake on one window and he then had to paint all the others to match. Thank goodness he didn’t do that to the front fa├žade. I have long since wanted to restore that brickwork, but knew it would be a tough job. I had a go at the downstairs windows, but after treatment with several pots of paint stripper I’d only managed to peel off a few layers. It was a messy job, and I decided to leave it to the professionals. Here are the before and after images.
