A few folks have asked what else is left to tackle on our main floor. Wellllll, I’m happy to report that all we have left to do in terms of actual renovation projects is detail stuff. Details like paint touch-ups, new hardware, lots of decorating, and such. Now that the big stuff is complete (I know, I still need to reveal the guest bathroom), even the hallway is getting a little love.
Here’s what our main hallway looked like when we bought the house…lots of old + orangish trim, and GOLD hardware everywhere (no, not the good kind of brass)…
We started this update with new (and wider) trim and a fresh coat of white dove paint on all the wallls, trim and hallway built-in piece. A can of white paint goes far. Really far! We also updated the light fixture, to one of my favorite surface mount fixtures from Schoolhouse Electric.
Hardware always puts the cherry on top, and it certainly made this little space feel complete and updated to 2014 standards.
Cheers to a happy week!
