I decided to break my hall makeover into two parts. Today I'll show you just one end of the hall, because the next section is going to be a bit longer. Unfortunately (yet not surprisingly) I forgot to take a "before" shot before I painted the hall. But I did take one before putting up the new wall decor.
I found this scroll wall decor (I guess you can call it that...?) from my moms old friend who was re-doing her decor. It was cracked on the bottom and was a blue/grey/brown color- very Tuscan looking. I kept it in a spare bedroom for about a month and thought about getting rid of it. It just wasn't my style at all. Then, *light bulb* I thought to spray paint it pure white and make a little shelf out of it. I had a picture in a gold/wooden frame, with a soft pink flower and butterfly, very botanical looking. I loved the print when I saw it at T.J. Maxx and knew it had to go home with me. I didn't have a place for it, so it hung out in my bedroom for a while, waiting for a new home. I decided to put them together and make a cozy little spot in my hall. So this came to be...
The "H", I purchased at Michaels craft store for $1.99 and spray painted it black. Then I borrowed the topiary and candle from my living/dining room.
;) Did anyone else notice that the candle goes "off" and "on" throughout this post? Half way through taking a couple shots, I thought it would be cute to light the candle, then arranged the pictures in a non-sequential layout. Whoops.
I'm pricing this part of the hall at $1.99 because I already had everything besides the "H". None of these items were intended to go in the hall when purchased. I think it counts like that...?
In a few days I'll show you my favorite part of the hall, and by far the most work. Here is a sneak preview (well where I got my inspiration from):
See ya' soon for Part 2 of the $50 hall makeover.
