The thing is, the only update I'd made to our hallway was to hang a few pictures and a plaque, and that space needs a bit of love since it's otherwise a bit dingy and cramped and houses the Husband's bike. When you consider that it's the first thing you see as you come into our house, I figured it ought to look nice. First impressions and all that.

Cleaning done and paint supplies at the ready, I took down all the pictures...and the coat hanger you can see in this next picture. It was only held on with two screws in rawl plugs, so it seemed worth the time to take it down rather than painting around it. Plus...if I could find something more visually interesting, I'd replace it in a heartbeat. Just sayin'.

With one nap's worth of grace, I was able to do all the cutting in and put the first coat of paint on three of my four walls. I could have done the fourth, more than likely, but we have another project to get to before I can paint that, and it's more functional than decorative. Basically, when moving our couch into the flat, we manage to rip out half of the wall mounting for the radiator...yeah, we need to fix that. The Husband did a temporary fix involving a twopenny piece, if you can imagine, but that's not holding up any more, so we've decided to do things correctly this time around.
