I cant wait to show y’all how we’re planning to give our boring old hallway some rustic charm with a farmhouse style hallway makeover.
Good morning friends!
I’m so, so excited to finally share our first reno project of 2016!
Our boring, and frankly, rather ugly hallway space is about to a much-needed makeover.
I’m going to make this part short and sweet because, well, it’s a hallway – here’s what we’ll be starting with:
The view standing at the top of our stairs, looking left…
Our master bedroom is behind me, my craft room to the left & our guest bath to the right. Carson’s room is down at the other end of the hall, with a guest room on either side as well.
Just look at those peachy, pink walls. Perfect.
We’ve got ourselves a total mix of various metals and door hardware. Mixed metals might be “in”, but here lies a great example of what NOT to do.
There’s also some pretty fancy lighting.
And, this old thermostat might be charming (and also covered in peachy-pink paint), but it’s definitely nowhere close to efficient.
And here’s a view from the other end, looking back to the top of the stairs (on the right) and our master bedroom at the end.
And now, let’s knock those awful images out of your head with a look at our design plans to create a farmhouse style hallway:
As you can see, there will be some board + batten, industrial lighting, farmhouse style trim, rustic artwork, fancy black hardware from Schlage and a planked ceiling to top it all off.
Sure sounds like a lot of work.
But, I have no doubt it’s going to be a pretty amazing space when we’re done with it. Well, as amazing as a hallway can be anyway.
Stay tuned my friends!
Wishing you SUCH a lovely day!
