Hallway makeover...

Hi all! Well we don't have much longer to wait until we find out who the winner of the giveaway is going to be so if you haven't entered then please do so before the deadline. But in the meantime, I thought that I'd share with you what I've been up to this week. This started out as me just going to paint the little white side table then turned into a much larger project as you can see by the before and after pictures. So the above picture is of before and....
Here's what it looks like now.....I used the same color in the hallway as what I used in the kitchen and laundry room and it seems to all flow better. I'm extremely pleased with it. As you can see I also went ahead and painted the shelf black that is above the doorway.
Here's a closeup of the little side table before....I had painted it last year and roughed up the edges some to give a worn look but never have been completely satisfied with it sooo...
this is what it looks like now and you can see the details that I had added the first time to it better. I took anaglypta paintable wallpaper and cut out some of the patterns and glued them to some areas on the table to give it some more charm. I've used this technique many many times and just love it. I'm really pleased with the entire room now and that's just one more room less that I have checked off my to do list. It's on the living room hopefully soon. That project will take forever and I'll need the assistance of my husband to move the large pieces of furniture for me.
Well I'm off to see what else I can check off my ongoing list. You all check back real soon to find out who the winner of the giveaway is....good luck to all of you!
