Hallway update

It was time to update our “Art Gallery” hallway. 

All our kid’s art was nice, but I wanted an Elegant Modern look.

Vision Board

We added thin plywood and trim to our doors to cover some of the damage caused by kids and dogs, then painted them semi gloss black (3 coats).

We spackled, sanded, and painted all the walls gray.
I chose a bright white for the trim and moldings for a bold contrast, and to make the walls and doors pop.

I converted our Lack storage units into a padded storage bench, and added some decorative pillows

I mounted 6 Ikea Trones Storage cabinets to the wall under the picture frames collage. I placed a long piece of fiberboard, that I cut and painted white, on top of it to serve as a counter top for the decorative accents and my samurai sword.

I made another picture collage for the stairway.  

I mounted a full length mirror and small vase with flowers on the floor at the top of the stairs.

Finally we added an 5 spotlight ceiling light fixture to replace the old dim 1 bulb one.

We are very happy with our updated Elegant hallway
