Hallway Reveal

It's done, it's finally done!  And I absolutely love it.  Not sure why this project took so long as it's one of the smallest "rooms" in the house, but it did.  It probably had something to do with the fact that I skim coated all of the walls, and then had to paint and clean/strip the hardware on FIVE doors...  Small space, but it sure had a lot of details.  With out further ado, shall we dive in?



Pretty nice, huh? :-)  Wall color is Benjamin Moore Gray Lake in eggshell finish and trim is my standard Behr Premium in Ultra Pure White, satin finish.  I also installed a planked ceiling and crown moulding, which I think looks natural to the space.




Now for the details, I painstakingly cleaned and shined up every piece of brass hardware on the doors, and it came out beautifully.  Before, they looked like they were oil rubbed bronze, but no - that was just dirt!


This lovely light is the Crystorama Solaris 3-Light Chandelier which you can find here. It's a little bit more modern than I would typically go for in this house, but I just really, really liked it.  I think it adds some "drama" to what is otherwise a pretty generic space.


Lest we forget where we started, here is a reminder....



Much better, yes? 

Sincerely,

    1. HA! Yes, I was MIA in June for sure. I wear a lot of hats between my job, being a student, a wife, running my household and renovating so sometimes my other responsibilities pull me away from the renovations.

      Definitely much more to see in the future - every inch of this house needs to be touched! Right now I am slaving away in the dining room, so there will be updates soon on that space.

      Thanks for sticking with me and the kind comment! :)

  3. I am so glad I followed your link from another website. Love love love the ceiling treatment in your hallway. We have been considering something similar for our master bath but I was not sure if I would like the look, but your pictures have convinced me otherwise. Thanks so much.
