I have been busy painting and decorating my rooms since we moved in last July, the bathroom, the living/dining/entry, the master bedroom, and now our little hallway. I really painted this in December after I painted the living room, but I just finished putting up some pictures and I thought I would share what I did with this small space.
Like I said, this is a really small space (and taking pictures of it is nearly impossible). There are 5 doors in this hallway that go to the 3 bedrooms, the bathroom and the linen closet, and an archway that goes into the living room. I ended up painting the ceiling Benjamin Moore White Dove in pearl finish and painting the walls Benjamin Moore Thunder, the same color as the living room. I was going to use a lighter version of Thunder, but in the end I decided to keep it all the same since the spaces are so small (I didn’t want there to be too much going on with different paint colors). I also painted all of the trim and doors in BM White Dove.
I replaced the ugly boob light with a lantern that I got from Overstock. I bought one lantern and it was damaged so they sent me another one and told me to keep the damaged one (the second, undamaged one hangs over my dining table here). I fixed it up and painted it and you can’t tell where the damage is. I will eventually find something else since it’s a little large for the space, but it’s a lot better than the old boob light.
You can see that I don’t have a lot of room for decoration and no space for standing furniture, so I ended up hanging pictures of our family and some personal art done by our girls. It makes me happy to walk by and see things they made for and gave to me everyday!
As you can see, not all of the door knobs are changed yet so there are brass ones and ORB ones. I am slowly changing them to ORB when I redo each room.
What are you up to lately? Are you starting any new projects?
Hope you have a great weekend! My husband and I are going to Florida for a few days to warm up. 😉 I will be posting as usual next week though.
