We have a small upstairs hallway that lacks natural light and wasn't used for much more than a place to store the laundry hamper. Womp womp...
Although a tricky area, I knew I could make the most of it.
We had chair rail moulding installed. Then I painted the walls Revere Pewter and the area underneath white.
We replaced the light fixture for something better. I really love the look with the Edison bulb.
I bought a new rug from Overstock. For a cohesive look, it's the same as the one I'm using in my entry, just a different size. It was affordable and really brightened up the space.
I found this dresser at the thrift store for $15. It was old and beat up, but I knew it would be perfect to store overflow from the linen closet.
Before bringing it inside I gave it a good scrub then painted it with a can of "oops paint" found at Home Depot.
The changes were dramatic and I instantly fell in love!
Some of the decor on top of the dresser has changed. And I replaced the art for something that was more size proportionate. I'm constantly changing and rearranging my home as it evolves.
Now this space, albeit small serves a purpose.
