Our hallway is done! no, the closet is still not finished... but the hallway finally looks decent. It's actually not completely finished, but it's good enough for now. I painted it all by myself (as if you couldn't notice...)!
I've been wanting to paint the hallway for quite a while now, but had no idea what to do. It's not extremely dark, but it does not get a lot of light either. I was thinking about painting one or two walls in a lavender color. Then one day, while browsing for more ideas, i found Jen's Mudroom makeover... how cool are those stripes?! I showed it to my husband and to my surprise he was ok with painting the whole hallway (i just wanted to do two walls).
I did not want just a grey color, so we chose a somewhat greyish purple (or purplish grey...) that fits really good with one of the drawers from the dresser we already had there. A couple of years ago i bought what seems like hundreds of 20x20 mirrors with round edges at IKEA and have used them in every single apartment i have lived in... i hope this is the last time i stick them to yet another wall.
I absolutely love how it turned out:
You've already seen our chalkboard wall calendar
