Hallway/Entryway Before & After


Okay folks... here it is!  finally, right!? jeesh :)
The big picture...  With the entire entryway and hallway, together!
It's so nice to have this area... done presentable! :)
I'm thrilled with how things came together!



While Ronda and I were out shopping one day, she spotted these AWESOME corbels and I KNEW I had to have them!
Originally I thought I might leave them as they were, but in the end, they were just a bit too dark for the space, and the brown just stuck out too much against the light paint.
So I gave them a coat or two of flat white and then just rubbed them up a bit.


LOVE them even more! :)
I really wanted to be able to take these cool pieces with us, if we ever move, so we did a little different application with these.  We actually put some command picture hanging strips on the backsides... stuck them up there and then just caulked around the whole thing.
That way we can pull them down, and just have to do a bit of sanding and paint touch up, if we need to take them with us.


I love how they kinda... frame the sign a bit too... makes it look a little more cozy than before.





Sorry it's taken a while to get these pictures together... life has been a BIT crazy around here!
Cason's home with the stomach flu today... I have a cold sore the size of CHINA on my lip (ew)
and currently have a two and a half year old crying under my computer desk.
.........oh, and it's officially lunch time. uggggh. LOL
Life is sure ... FULL today, to say the least.

  7. Do you watch Sarah's house? I have been on the hunt for the perfect corbels after seeing her use them in the farmhouse she was redoing.

    I CANNOT use command adhesive in this house. It falls off. Weird.

  8. Looks lovely....it is funny though, when I saw photos of your hallway last week, and I could see part of the stairs, I thought you were showing us an upstairs hallway...now I realise it is right next to your front door! Hehe, funny how my mind 'put' your house photos together and got the wrong end of the stick :)
