Things I love today: Fabulous new hallway

Hooray for redecoration! Our boring front hallway has gone from drab to fab in just…four days? More if you count the months we (we = Trent) worked on restoring the mirror. Here’s how the hallway looked just before we started painting. There were two candle sconces and a coat rack in here but it was pretty boring:

Here’s how it looked when I started painting. Pretty terrible and a lot like the set of Les Miserables, right? You should click on the photo to get a full sense of the splotchyness! I was sure I had destroyed the apartment with this project.

Ahhh, sweet completion. One more coat of paint made a world of difference. Rob and I hung up the mirror on Sunday morning and put the coat rack back up. Like Rob said, “it looks like a little room now.” The giant gold mirror is really nice in that location, impressive without being overwhelming. This is what it looks like when you come in the door.

    What color is your new wall paint? I like it a lot.

    It is called “Oregon Trail” from Ace Hardware. Sort of a greige putty color.
