Hallway Makeover

My husband was visiting friends at Berkeley this past weekend, so I took advantage of the free time I had to redo my hallway (that has barely been touched for the 4 years we have lived there).

I am so happy with how it turned out that every time I go from the bedroom to the living room I just stop and admire it for a while.  Also, it’s really nice to have a little extra storage in the hallway as I was able to fill up those boxes with some of my craft supplies that were previously piling up on top of the washer and dryer and fill up the bottom shelf with spare linens that were taking up SeSe’s space under the bed.  Plus, you barely even notice that ugly electrical box anymore!

Here’s a closeup of the after:

This makeover consisted of some leftover Martha Stewart brand “Nimbus Cloud” colored paint (same as the main parts of the house) and a sale table from Pier 1 as well as some cheap art from Target (that I am in love with) and a few accessories.

As tends to be the case when I feel I have achieved a moment of perfect home styling, my husband adds his own accessories…

Yes, that is a tiny transformer who has graced the hallway.  Husband says he is protecting us… well, I guess it is his house too…
