Upstairs Hall Makeover
I finished this ages ago, but just got it together to post about it. Typical. So, this is what the upstairs hall looked like when I moved in this summer.
And this is what it looks like now.
I painted the trim, walls and shelves. For the back of the bookcase I used some subflooring and cut it to the size of the opening. I then pasted a textured wall paper on to that. Here is a close-up of it unfinished.
I painted it light gray (I mixed some white trim paint with a little sample of black paint that I had left over), then used a metallic glaze over that. And because I'm ADD, I spray painted the hardware to match.
I have since then rented out my upstairs so now I don't even get to use it. Typical.
