We finally finished all of the big moving in projects on our to do list! What a load off of my shoulders, I feel like I can finally relax again! We celebrated last Saturday with a housewarming party with both old and new friends. Two families that we knew in Hawaii moved to Germany along with us so it’s been nice to arrive already having a small community. We have also met a few new friends in our village, our landlady and a sweet German couple just up the street.
We had everyone who came leave a quote on our new chalkboard wall and, of course, the children left their own “quotes” on the lower half of the wall, I think they’re original. 😉
We did a LOT of work on this one little corner. Previously, there were three different types of wallpaper on this 10 foot section of wall! It was a bit chaotic so we ripped it all down and painted the entire corner white. I wanted to add a bit of drama to this room, but didn’t want to make it too much of a pain to move out when we eventually do, so I actually used chalkboard contact paper to cover the entire wall! It’s definitely a two person job, and we do have a few bubbles that need to be smoothed out, but it’s a great alternative to having to paint and then un-paint when we leave. The contact paper will peel off just like a sticker, we’ll wad it up and be on our way!
