It feels like ages since I updated this blog, probably because most everything is done. This week the painters finally finished painting the ceiling in the bathroom, so now literally the only thing left in there to do is the mirror over the sink. The full effect of the bathroom with the finished ceiling looks like this:
I was actually able to both decide on and purchase a mirror yesterday after work. I got a 60x70cm mirror with LED back lighting at a store called Bauhaus (like a Home Depot, for those of you in the US). It looks like this (photo ganked from the link):
I need to get an electrician to install it. I wish I had gotten my act together back when I actually had an electrician working here a couple of weeks ago. Now this will be super expensive to install, but that’s (literally) the price you pay for being disorganized. It will be centered over the sink:
When I was at Bauhaus I noticed they had nice looking shower caddies that fit over the shower hardware. I’ve been thinking one of these would be nice to have, having seen them at one of the tile stores I went to months ago, so I decided to go for it:

I also finally picked up a clothes rod and some brackets so that I can start hanging coats in my coat closet. I also had to buy a hacksaw, since none of the rods were the right length. It was much easier to saw through the rod than I was expecting. Here’s the rod in action:
Yes, all those coats are mine. Norway has a tricky climate and a person needs a lot of coats for all kinds of conditions. I’m really happy with how this storage space turned out. I can get a lot in there, and it’s easy to keep organized. The rest of the hall storage looks like this now:
It’s a tight little corner of the apartment, but it seems to work ok.
