the upstairs hallway is almost done

By in Upstairs Hallway



After a lot of work this weekend my upstairs hallway is about 99% finished! I still have to finish painting the bedroom doors and have the new door installed on Thurston’s room, but all the patching, priming and painting is finally done. I’m particularly pleased with my new hallway light, a Fado pendent downlight from IKEA that I picked up over the weekend in Ottawa. My dad helped me install it on Sunday.

I still have a lot to do in my bedroom, but all the necessary materials have been purchased. Work is kicking my butt this year, so I apologize to all of you who check in here for the lack of updates. I’m hoping as I move along over the rest of this week and next week to be posting more as I try to wrap this project up!
