A Refreshed Hallway

GUYS. Our pink bathroom renovation is this close to being done! I cannot wait to share pictures with you. It looks amazing. I mean, anything besides the pink toilet would have been amazing, but this is for realsies amazing.

In the meantime, I thought I’d show you our little hallway refresh. It’s been done for over a month now, but hey, who’s counting?

I’d been wanting to do a picture gallery in the hallway forever. It’s definitely not done but we got a good start. I showed the wedding pictures we hung up a long time ago.

For the next large section of hallway we ended up using most of the same frames [Threshold line from Target] with a couple of fun exceptions.

Some fun things.  The square mirror is from Crate and Barrel. I love love love it.

The small white frame has a photo of us parasailing in Florida. I found the Scrabble letters on Etsy for super cheap [after seeing some at a friend’s home and loving it].

The picture on the left is a photobooth picture from a wedding we went to with our besties this summer. I think it’s tempting sometimes to only use the highest resolution or the absolute most artistic photos in a gallery wall.  But i feel like you should use photos that you love, that mean something to you. After all, we walk down this hallway more than anyone.

Honestly, it’s the piece we like the least so I could see us replacing it at some point. But we are both from Texas so that is meaningful to us and we wanted to not only use photos. The E was a gift from special friends years ago right after we got married.

We hung up all these nice frames and pictures etc. and then realized there was a teeny tiny problem.

You couldn’t actually see the gallery wall. You see, that hallway is dark. We had installed a super cheap Lowes light fixture when we moved in, always planning to replace it. When we had the electrician out to work on the bathroom Andy had a brilliant idea.

Instead of one flushmount, how about two?

We had the electrician create the fixture and then we ordered two schoolhouse style lights [I don’t even remember what web site]. Simple and we now get a ton more light in the hallway. Yay for smart hubbies!
