Let's quickly recall what we started with, okay?
okay, so as you might recall, we then got that weirdish period where we painted everything white but it looked like a milk carton..
But luckily, we came to our senses and decided to cut the wood into wainscoting.
Still a lot needed to be done, but we got some help, as our friends, Bram and Marcella, came by to lend us a much needed hand!
While Joost and Bram where busy attacking some of the trees in the garden, Marcella and I started painting..
meanwhile, Broen and Lieve took turns at staring grumpily out of the living room window..
|"I still really hate you!"|
The next day, we decided to tackle the floor (we had some wood left from the living room)
|all finished! Well, kind of..|
For those of you who think home improvement is very expensive, here are the costs:
- wainscoting: free ( recycled from the old paneled wall, and we borrowed the needed tools)
- ceiling: free
- floor: 40,- euros ( new underfloor and secondhand top floor)
- painting: 40,- euros (part of it consisted in leftover paint from my parents, which was great!)
- floor oil: about 10 euros (rest was used for the living room)
- wall-repair: 10,-
Since I am planning to make the coat hangers for free from branches, the total sum for the hallway renovation is just 100 euros, which I think is pretty neat, isn't it?
What do you think of it?
Next up our list are the kitchen and our bedrooms, so we'll see what we're going to do with that ;)
