With Luna’s birthday as well as Christmas approaching, Joe and I woke up one day and decided that our hallway was a bit scruffy looking and needed a refresh. I say refresh, but what I mean is we’ve practically redecorated it. I’ll be doing a full blog post on this soon but one feature that’s done and making me smile each day is our marble
This past month, we’ve made a few additions to our beautifully bright hallway. And isn’t it always the little things that make a room shine? In my last update I showed you the paint we chose (Valspar’s Oopsy Daisy is the yellow colour in case you’re wondering) and our monochrome striped carpet on the stairs.

Last September, Joe took on the challenge to remove all of the rotten plaster in the hallway and landing. If you need to refresh your memory you can read all about that here. After he’d had some success with bedroom 3 adding the plasterboard himself, and our plasterer telling him he’d actually done a pretty good job, he decided we might as well do the
I claimed back in January, that 2014 would mark the year of the door for us. Well, I didn’t know it at the time but within the month we were the proud new owners of internal doors to replace all of our old ones.
