Today I wanted to share a little hallway update that I made recently.
It is the hallway that leads to our kids bedrooms and it was looking pretty sad.
Seeing it now in this picture it kind of looks like a scary hospital or something.
It was just one of those areas that got overlooked since it’s not a “room.”
It’s usually the make overs of these ignored areas that make me the happiest.
Ahhhh, let there be light!
This make over started with some really simple art for the walls. I bought a bunch of scrapbook paper…I used that instead of regular construction paper because it is a studier paper and comes in better range of colors. I let my oldest trace some shapes and then I cut them out. We glued them down in a variety of arrangements and then framed them in IKEA’s Nyttja frames. I hung them with Command Picture hanging Strips. Easy Peasy.
I love the color these prints bring to the space and I also added some other fun accessories, including my new 5-minute project…tassels! You already saw them here. I couldn’t help but add a couple to this little table too. I have debated painting this inexpensive table for years, but I decided to forgo the paint for some bright accessories. Sometimes you don’t have to paint every piece of furniture!
I found the cute chalkboard jar at Michael’s. They had a whole new aisle of very Anthropologie-esque canisters and dishes. All of it was really affordable but throw in one of those 50% off coupons and forgetaboutit.
I played around with the styling a bit…
And landed on this…
Everything is always better with some greenery…
And a chubby little baby 🙂
