Posts Tagged ‘osmo polyx oil’

Here I stand before a freshly painted door (goodbye forever evil dark red stain – hello nice neutral Farrow and Ball Estate Eggshell)… rested after two lovely weeks away, to find my industrious colleagues have been doing anything but resting!

It begins with a door – just one of many, painted smartly – and then I find this glorious arena, this palatial salle de vente we call our sales office has changed beyond almost all recognition…

and now a delightful avenue of golden Sweet Chestnut strips awaits our footsteps where once only mottled pinky-red carpet tiles (you know the kind) lay.

This is landmark stuff for us.

I know I should start work on the website immediately but I think I’ll celebrate with a cup of fresh coffee and a madeleine and just gaze at the floor for a little while…  and think about desks?

I oiled the new floor at the weekend ‘she says nonchalantly’…  the new floor?!

The glorious new CHESTNUT FLOOR!!!!

You better believe it..! I mean we’re having a hard time believing it ourselves and we’re standing here staring at it.

Tom will be back from summer holidays today and I’m not sure he will recognise his own office thanks to the handy-work of Philip and Steve over the weekend.

Sweet Chestnut was Tom’s choice… and I was going to say it is an under-used timber but on reflection that’s only really in comparison with Oak, otherwise Chestnut seems to be very popular these days.. we’ve machined alot lately for interior and exterior cladding and for joinery.. and of course the local Sweet Chestnut coppiced products are very close to our hearts.. anyway.. so sweet Chestnut it is, and I LOVE it!

And I really didn’t expect it to look so rich and varied in colour… but that’s probably because we did go for an ‘all inclusive’ kind of grade where the idea is to throw nothing away if you can help it.. and we can help it!

Now for office number two…

and… the new desks!!!

I think can feel an office warming party coming on…
