My Cave: Again, hallway is done!

by Schnauzevoll

Hey there, Internet!

Why is it that I always finish my hallways first? Ok, not much furniture needed and it is the first room you enter when opening the front door but I usually plan on finishing other rooms first when all of a sudden, hallway is done. So in my new cave over here in Oldenburg it slowly looks like a home, the hallway is done with only a few exceptions:

list-bat-png Stuffed bat thingie to prevent cold air from sneaking in from outside (had it done three times already but always a friend came and kidnapped them, guess I can as well do them as my first product to sell in my etsy store?! Probably will start early 2017, maybe for Blogversary in February?)

The lamp was installed by a friend who helped me a lot during these moving days and is the one I had in my old hallway in Braunschweig. Same with the rug and umbrella stand. Because I prefer to not add any unnecessary holes to my walls the coat hanger got a bit remodeled and is now nailed to the ladder. Since the new cave has 3.55m tall walls I prefer to have my ladder available instead of storing it in my cellar and this way it turned into some decoration that some friends who came to visit really didn’t notice until I pointed it out.

Latest thing I did in the hallway were the decals for the windows in my frontdoor. Even though the glass parts do look nice I always have to pass them when I need to go to the toilet so I added black adhesive foil to 8 of the 9 glasses and the upper center one got some ‘half’ bat silhouettes flying from the black towards the clear glass. So yes, maybe the hallway isn’t completely done yet but most of it, enough to feel pretty much done! There also will be a video on the progress in the new flat up soon!

Do you have any home projects that you are planning to finish this year or early next year? Have a nice evening!
