Hallway

1 Oct

I know writing about the transformation of our hallway doesn’t seem all that exciting, but the reality of the before and after is as dramatic as any of the other rooms you’ve seen here.

In keeping with the way the rest of the house was, the hallway was quite dark.  Since it serves as the main artery to get from here to there in our bungalow, in those days it felt more like a tunnel than a hallway. 


Pulling up the carpeting and painting the walls white certainly was a huge improvement all by itself. 

When the girls were little this wall graced framed photographs of them chronicling the years.   As they got older, we started replacing those pictures with artwork and this is what we have today.

This is the piece that’s on the opposite wall…

Each room has a sign above the door that gives you an indication of what you’ll find inside…

 

 

 

This is a great mirror my husband and I picked up at a flea market, it’s perfect for outside our daughters’ room and is opposite their bulletin board.

 

 

We need one more sign, for the back room.  This is that catch-all room that most of us have.  It serves as guest room, den, office, etc.  Maybe one day I’ll find the perfect sign to grace its doorway… any suggestions?

And finallly, here’s the light fixture that really helped transform our tunnel…
