Painted the hallway

Another weekend down and more jobs ticked off the list. Hooray!

During the week, the electrician came back to do a few jobs.
1) He moved the kitchen pendants to the new position over the island bench.

 2) He installed the new laundry pendant.
 3) He reattached the powerpoint to the microwave under the island so we could move the microwave back into place.
4) He replaced a faulty powerpoint; and
5) He moved the light switch in Andrew's bedroom so we can install his wardrobe.

On Saturday, the plasterer came to fix holes in the walls.
1) He fixed the laundry, where we had to cut out for the pipe problem in the new shower.

2) He added cornice to the top of the cabinetry in the lounge room.
3) He covered the holes in the kitchen ceilig where the pendants used to be; and
4) He patched up the main bathroom where the door used to be before we moved it.

I promised some photos of the window film that I put on. Not very exciting but had to be done to pass inspection.

David bought some weatherboards and has almost finished replacing broken and missing boards down the blind sideway. Here the board are ready to be cut.

 Hopefully during the week, we can finished hanging up the dryer in the laundry. We have the hole cut where we need to vent it, see...

 On Thursday the glazier added the glass to the window above the laundry door.
 Then on the weekend, I did two coats of paint on the hallway. Which I changed the colour for. The other one was too dark. I am glad we did a test before we did the whole room. It is now the same as the colour upstairs and in the living room. However, it looks so much greyer in this south facing hallway.
 We are hoping to get in touch with the kitchen cabinet people today. Cross your fingers they call us back.



  1. Hi Natalie,

    The place is looking great. I love the colour in the hall.

    I'm thinking of venting my dryer, too, but have been reluctant to cut holes into walls, as ours are brick. Where does it go once it reaches outside? Does it just go out, or into something else? I need to get this done as the lint build up in the laundry is ridiculous.

    Why did you have to have the privacy film on the windows?
    Thanks Nat.

    1. Hey there Liz!

      The dryer just goes straight outside with a vent grill/flap thing on the outside to stop water getting in. Our walls are just plaster and weatherboard so easy for us. Brick would be harder. You can go up through the roof too.

      The privacy film is due to overlooking issues into the houses next door. Mind you we can't see anything out of some of them so seems pointless. Anyway we will leave it up for the inspection.


  2. Thanks Natalie. Looks like you'll soon be finished all the work! Hope you'll keep blogging any new reno's you do. Cheers, Liz.
