After the painting and putting up decals, it was on to adding shelving an extra light (since it felt like a dungeon in the hallway...very sad).
I went with white shelves from Ikea. They are Ekby Hemnes and are very simple, but light and bright.
I held the shelves up and hubby marked exactly where I wanted them. He measured, then measured again, used the handy dandy drill and walla the shelves were up:-)
I didn't take a picture before I started putting stuff on them (I guess I got a little too excited!).
I. Love. It. Now it makes me smile:-)
Remember how it used to be? What a huge difference!
I love the new light too. Also an Ikea find;-) It's the Minnen pendant lamp and the price...only $24.99...score!
Our hallway is not very wide so this light works extremely well. For this installation we had to call in the professionals since there wasn't already a light hanging from the spot I wanted this beauty. But I love it so much it was well worth it!
It's really difficult to get a good shot in our hallway so I took a few;-)
The hallway is almost done! Here is an updated list (I should probably do this for every project!):
Organize inside of cabinets
Use hooks on opposite wall to hang purses and possibly light jackets
Add art to walls (One wall is done, but not the other side)
I love that I have extra storage space for organizing! Isn't it a much happier space?:-)
