I am painting the shutters in the study - Farrow and Ball "dimity". There are 2 windows. Each window has 4 shutters. Each shutter has 3 panels. So front and back, 2 coats, that is 96 planes that need to be painted. You have to paint them in a certain order so that the hinges don't stick shut, you don't smudge the ones you've already done that haven't dried yet and you have dry bits to hold onto as you paint, as otherwise the shutters move about. It's like a fiendishly complicated Japanese puzzle.
