Happy new year! With the new year comes a new project. One of his areas that has been very neglected in my house is the upstairs hallway. It’s just been through for a long time, and it’s one of the areas I haven’t been to much either. It’s a small area and has definitely been neglected. It’s time to make it even better with our 2nd floor hallway makeover plan! I’m joining a group of talented creators brought together by Casa Watkins Living Share our space before and after at New Year’s Room Refresh ChallengeWe are excited to give this area of our home a whole new feel and look.We will be sharing our progress every Tuesday in January. I will do my best to finish it in time!

I would like to share with you my inspiration and thought process for this project. Many of the changes we’re about to make are cosmetic. After the holidays are over I need to budget carefully so I want to replace the old door but for now I’m planning on repainting it. You can’t do it all at once, can you?
It’s a normal second floor hallway. Lucky to have a decent sized linen closet. We refinished the hidden hardwood a few years ago and loved it! Another improvement we made when we installed the new roof was adding a solar tube skylight to the hallway ceiling. This was one of the best decisions ever made, and I love how the corridors don’t look like caves during the day. Before that, if you went upstairs to do something, you had to turn on the hall lights at noon.
Here are some easy hallway upgrades on a budget:
Paint the doors and trim black
replacing old light fixtures
replace wall mirror
Add new art?
paint a mural on the top of the wall
The trimming that I started about 10 years ago and didn’t finish easily is finally over (laughs)
Added new carpet runners on wood floors

I love the return of large wall art and murals. Originally I was thinking of wallpaper for the upper part of the wall in the hallway, but when I started nearly 20 years ago, I was in the painting business of murals and furniture. I am thrilled to be able to take home what I have painted in my beloved Tuscan style dining room! I’m torn about adding new art because murals are going to be a lot of art anyway. Get in touch with other talented creators and see what they’re up to in their rooms!
