Hallway Makeover-The Oak House Reno

Thursday, September 14, 2017

A hallway is an easily forgotten space.  It can be somewhat unimportant, after all it literally is just a pass thru.  After painting the bathroom, I wanted to update this space because the walls were marked up, and the doors were the original 1980's mauve-ish pink.  More importantly, this house doesn't have a coat closet.  The only closet on the lower level is the laundry room, and it is pretty narrow.  

I thought of doing hooks to create a sort of 'coat closet', and I kind of love it!  The hooks remind me of my kindergarden classroom.  I don't remember much about it, but I do remember this little cubby/coat area behind a wall in the classroom.  And I loved being able to go back there at put away my things!  

These little vintage striped hooks add the perfect amount of interest to this mundane hallway and serve a purpose.  Come on in and let me put away your things!

I had to work around the thermostat that was centered on the wall.  So I decided to hang my existing bird prints, that originally hung in my master bedroom at the old house.  They've been leaning against the wall since we moved, so it was good to get them up.  



I still want to update the brown doorbell box hanging over the art prints, and also update the lighting.  I have another idea that involves painting all of the hallway doors in house, but I will talk more about that later. In the meantime, if you can re-create the art using the items below!
