Hallway Re-do. PART 1

Hey, guys!

How's it going?

Wanna hear a story?

That's too bad. 'Cuz I don't really have a story for you. But we can chat for a minute. Cool?

I want to tell you a little bit about the transformational space that is our upstairs hallway.

Let's do this.


It's no secret that I have a tendency to stay busy, because, as you know, I tend to get anxious being cooped up in the winter with nothing to do outside. Therefore, I created a list of all the little projects that I want to accomplish before spring hits and I spend every waking moment outside.

One of those small projects was to finish our upstairs hallway, which is right above the foyer we just painted.

Here's what our upstairs hall area looked like waaaayyyyy before, on the day we moved in:

The paint was white, there was nasty carpet, and the woodwork - which should have been the star of the show - wasn't highlighted in any way.

We didn't do anything to the hallway upstairs except paint. At the paint color John chose wasn't my favorite. About two years later we decided to redo our foyer. This hallway, since it's connected to the foyer, was also part of the deal. We painted over the hideous paint John chose (I love throwing him under the bus...) with a chalky blue, which took me quite some time to select. However, a few weeks later and the project was done.

Here's what it looked like a few days ago, which happened to be after we painted and spruced up our foyer:

There is no power outlet in this hallway, so everything is either candlelit or battery operated.


I wish I knew an electrician who would make house calls.


We did several things to spruce up our upstairs on a budget. Mind you, all of these projects were less than $80. That's pretty kick ass, if you ask me.

You can also read about our foyer spruce-up here and here.


Want to see the changes I've made to our upstairs hallway?

Check in tomorrow for the reveal!

Over and out.


  1. Wow that's a lot of gorgeous wood work!!


    1. Thanks, Robin! It's still a work in progress, though, because I still don't like the final product. That's the best part, right?!


Got some thoughts? Don't be shy. Leave 'em here!
