corridor reno, almost finished
Painted the ceiling a bright (almost cobalt) blue. Later there will be some glow-in-the-dark spots (for stars). And you can see our new "Chick-a-Dee Smoke Alarm" bird as well. (Dutch design - leuk!) I wanted silver walls as it is such a dark area. Silver paint looks black from most angles, apparently. Silver foil (my second idea) can go black over time, apparently. So I got silver insulation foil. I quite like it, but I've been asked more than once why we are so keen to keep the hallway well insulated. We're thinking of getting a silvery "rocket ship hatch" door decal for our bedroom door at the end. That may pull it together a bit more. Although stars inside the rocket ship don't make much sense...

My friend put in a SolaTube in a very dark bathroom--looks like the light is always on now. It really brightens dark areas--do you have them in Australia? Not sure what the cost was.

That light you see in the corridor is something like that. Small solar panel on the roof and it keeps a light on at each end of the corridor, although it's only on when the sun is shining, which is what we wanted.
