As you may have noticed, I have not been doing much indoor work (or writing posts, obviously!) for a while now ever since the weather warmed up. But today, while cleaning out the sunroom, I happened upon a frame I had revamped and put chicken wire in a while ago and a hallway refresh was born!
We have a little hallway that leads from our kitchen area to our half bath and then on to our laundry room and garage. Here it was, looking sad and forlorn…
There is a window in the laundry room that creates the shadows and glare on this wall…it looks really weird in this picture but that is just the light, I promise! The lone calendar may have been practical but it was certainly lacking in the “pretty” department.
After playing around with some things that I already had from the rest of the house and hanging the big frame, the hallway now looks like this!
Certainly not a big reveal, but a fun way to bring in a little more personality (and a bit of spring) to this area!
We even have famous paintings, behold “Going to the Circus” on top and “Sock in the Water” below (yes, that is exactly what my 3 year old told me it was!!):
I love my kids’ art!!!!
The best part is that this took me about 15 minutes to put together, and I didn’t have to spend any money on it!
Those kinds of projects are rare around here. : )
This is from the other side. The canvas is not a child's…it is my feeble attempt to join in on the painting session my kids were having. : ) I’m not quite sure what we will use the wire bin for yet, but I’m sure we will find a use.
Now I don’t know why I waited so long to do something with this hall!!
