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. It’s so nice to go back and and see how far we’ve come in what…4 months!! On a budget?! In the words of my husband, “Wow, our house was really ugly.” Honesty, folks.
This was after painting the trim, walls, and doing a rustic floor. Wayyy better. But still kinda blah. Kinda boring.
Doesn’t that just fill it in so nicely?
The shelf DIY-ing process:
The shelves were made from old pallets, no pictures for that though. I really should get better at that…
Old picture frames found at Goodwill and spray painted. See, spray paint cures all.
I ran out brown spray paint on accident, so I had to make up with some red I had laying around. It was a happy mistake because I love the mix-matched look.
