Documenting our disastrous move from leafy north London to the grungy south...

Hallway havoc

A big double height hallway = lots of light.

And lots of paint 

And lots of carpet

And lots of time!

After the bathroom was re-done, our builder got started on re-plastering our huge hallway. Then we waited, and waited, and waited for the plaster to dry. 

Then we put off painting it for quite a few weeks, cause every time we looked at it - we got scared!

Finally, all painted and (almost) done, here are a few pics. 

Left to right (top): before, yellowed walls; during, pink plaster walls; plaster drying. Left to right (bottom) where the cupboard once was; some wallpaper we found under the cupboard; and painting whilst hanging off a ladder!

After a lot of paint, a lot of carpet (and a burst water pipe before it was installed!), we have a bright white hallway, and a few accessories.

So, it's getting there. Still lots of space to be filled with artwork, I have ideas... watch this space!
