A lick of paint!
What sounds like a simple task actually involves: washing and scraping, raking out cracks, sealing patches before double skimming and filling, then sanding and re-sealing – phew!
The ceiling will have two coats of distemper applied, the walls two coats of flat acrylic, and two coats of semi-gloss enamel will be applied to all the woodwork.
The room will be stripped of its furniture while the room is being painted and the area will be closed to the public from Tuesday 10 June to Sunday 29 June.
You can visit Vaucluse House at the end of June to see a freshly presented Principal Bedroom. In the meantime, we'll be updating you on the progress of the painting work with photos on this page.

Play along with us: House Music at Your HouseMonday 17 August 2020
We invite you to join us in a new musical experiment, bringing the music of the 19th century into the 21st century. We’ve delved into the hundreds of popular songs that survive in the collection at Rouse Hill Estate and we’ve also asked some brilliant musicians to help you explore these pieces of music from their homes and in our historic houses.
