From Boring to Bright and Beautiful

As you can see, our hallway was a bit on the boring side.  The walls, trim, ceiling, and doors were all the same color and everything just seemed pretty drab.  I decided to go for a lighter greyish blue color on the walls and then a lighter version of that color on the ceiling.  I ended up going with Stony Path by Valspar for walls and Possibility for the ceiling.  The trim is the same white that I’ve used throughout the house- Pale Bloom by Valspar.

Okay so here are a couple more before photos.

I had started to paint some of the trim and walls at this point.

Now for the finished result, which came out really well in my humble opinion.

Remember this shelf from the thrift store…  Here’s what it used to look like.

Now with a fresh coat of white paint, it looks fabulous and is great for holding scarves, bags, and coats.

There’s one more hallway that needs the same treatment, and it’s in progress as I type.  Hope you guys like the transformation!
