End of the Hallway Styling

Many people don’t know what to do to decorate at the end of the hallway. It’s too small to put a table or a plant, but it also looks too bare to have nothing. I know I struggled with this. Man, the dilemmas of life. Though probably not original, I found the perfect solution for us. Shelves of family pictures! Here’s a way before, right when we bought the house: I’m so glad that I’m chronicling this progress.  ...

I knew it was an outdated set, but I loved how the corner hutch  ...
