My new wall

Some of you might remember me mentioning a little project that I have been working on in my new flat... in fact for a long time it literally took over my life as I decided I wanted to do it myself! So I did. Well I did get some help of the bf that I had flown over for a weekend and in the end I even had to turn to hired help, to make the finishing touches perfect.. but now it's done. I am quite happy... I finally have it.. my own brick wall...<3

first we bought slim bricks and adhesive and started placing the bricks on the wall...

with the gaps we had to improvise... and the whole process was quite fun....

I wanted an 'old-meets-modern feel', hence the spotlights from ikea...

next up was the mortar pointing... which turned out to be easier said than done! so after a failed attempt.. I gave up....

and hired help... it took a few days.. and the house was a horrible mess..

finally the finished wall! and it was all worth it... :)

excited to see the whole flat already? still working on it, but I promise to keep you updated here and on on twitter

loove you all, thank you for the sweet words and support.. <3
