125 Crest on wall (in progress)
Way back in the middle of September we started off doing our little bit of interior decoration at the House of Pain(t) and the image above was the first wall we started painting and also the first image we posted. My wall piece was based around the image below that we had done as a thank you to the developer who had kindly let us move into the basement and use it as our studio for 18 months.

When we started we thought we only had a week or two to get any work done before the demolition crew were moving in. As time passed and the schedule slipped we realised that we may have enough time to complete the entire house. Given that we got another couple of months out of it gave us just about all the time we needed to get the interior sorted ‘a la id-iom’. Towards the end I realised the 125 Crest wall was looking a little incomplete so I made some additions to give it a more finished feel. I thought it only fitting that our final wall should be an update from where we started…

The building our studio is currently in is slated for demolition at some point in the imminent future. Apart from making us want to cry like little girls it also gave us the bright idea that perhaps we could have a little paint jam inside her to give her a proper send off. After having a word with the developer (who’s a bit of an art fan) he gave us the go ahead. Unfortunately for us we managed to be left with the weekend when most of the people we’d have hoped would be helping out with a little bit of interior decoration were all at Paint & Beer in Amsterdam.
Not to be deterred we forged ahead regardless and managed to get a couple of people along to help out. So on Saturday we cranked up the music, got out the beers and had our own little paint and beer session. We’ll hopefully be adding more this week as I’d really love to fill the entire place with freshly painted walls but that all depends on the demolition schedule. With any luck though we’ll maybe be able to continue this weekend so if you’re interested watch this space…
