Hallway is done!

I am so excited! I finally got all the ugly, brown paneling painted. ALL of it. Last bit was down the hallway. Finally done! My little farmhouse is looking all nice and fresh. It's coming together! Here's a before and after - Sorry the pictures aren't better; it's hard to hit the light right:
unpainted paneling; view down hallway toward bathroom

paneling primed and ready

Looking up the hall toward the living room
trim primed for painting
(Somehow I didn't take a picture without the ladder and drop cloth. Oh well) Now all I have to do is paint those doors white (and spray paint the knobs with the Oil Rubbed Bronze!). The paneling is Creamy Mushroom and the walls are Ivory Palace, both Behr. It looks so much better! The door to your right is the guest bedroom. It's in the process of having its furniture redone and I'll repaint those walls too, as they are more of a peach than gold like I first thought. Not a peach person! :o) Stay tuned for a reveal on that room. I'm really excited about this room - it might actually be the one room that comes together all at one time. ha!

  1. It looks fantastic! It's amazing what a coat of paint can do to make a place all fresh and new!

    1. Thank you! Hard to really tell from just pictures but the change to the house has been amazing! I walk in and it's "ah" not "blah". It no longer looks like a hunting cabin but a nice, sweet farmhouse/cottage.

  2. What a difference Cecilia! So bright and fresh!!! I hope you share this at Tutorial Tips and Tidbits~ link goes live tonight!

  3. The hallway looks so much brighter. I love it!

  4. Seems like that one room re-do just leads to another. Looking good and will be happy to see it when finished. I need to get some of that Oil Rubbed Bronze to re-do all my door and cabinet knobs. new Follower and will watch your progress.

    1. Audrey,
      We used that on the kitchen hinges and they look fantastic. Can't wait to do the door knobs. Funny how brass was so in back in the 80's and 90's. Now we can't wait to get rid of it. ha. Glad to have you following!


Thank you for stopping by!
