Here's how it looked before:
The house had had some renovations done during the 80's when the original staricase had been removed and a then considered airy and more modern solution built instead in varnished wood. The wallpaper was also from those days and it had some defects from moist. The hall was rather unpractical as it had the big freezer standing on the parade spot. This pic is some random shot from 2011 of me and my photo face.
The handy men that built the kitchen and bathroom did the main work here. This would so not have happened if we'd try to do it ourselves...
April 2013. Painting time!
Here's how it turned out when done!:
The floors are painted with Permo paint for wooden floors and the walls with linseed oil paint.
The furniture are old/vintage.
Back in the old-old days there used to be a window around this spot. I put up a mirror in a window frame instead.
The rest of the rooms downstairs turned out rather different after their painting jos as well but that will be for another time to look at.
