Not at all sure that custard will go with that pea soup !
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

DON'T DO IT!
STEP AWAY FROM THE KETTLE...

There, doesn't that feel better? 
Lovely!

Making tea? Don't reckon much to the soup. :)

Sorry for the long delay in new update, you may have gathered that my work pattern is "non-standard" and I use the time back at work to post the updates and the time at home to work on things so that I have some updates to post!

The final finishing's on the inside







Now to apply the "Pea Soup"!

Ooh! I am so jealous!  :envy:

Looks like it's going to be a really cosy den.

Looking good. If it was mine I'd have left the wood unpainted, just stained but the pea soup and custard is going to set it all off very nicely. :thumbsup:

You could have done it the Mr Bean way, it would have been a lot quicker.....

That Green reminds me of a house I once bought, the owner had painted the ceiling that colour. I bent down every time I went in that room and I am only 5'......

Thanks guys, you're probably right Brian, once I put all the backscene/lighting shelf etc.  you won't see much of the walls!  I did have help from my 12 y.o. daughther for some of the time, so it did start to become a bit Bean-esque at times.... especially as she chose to wear a rabbit onesy!

As a late-ish homage to the big music festival that was nearby (T in the Park) - I did a colour test of the external paints (they use a large red T in their advertising of the event... the main sponsor being Tennants) - you can also see that the final roof covering is roughly in place too now.



Also found that I was trailing in lots of grass and the door sill is quite a high step, so work started on a bit of a deck/platform



Pea Soup Paint pretty much applied now
