DIY Hallway Makeover
Have you noticed all the end-cap-of-hallways makeovers around in various catalogs, shelter magazines, and blogs? One of the first ones I remember noticing and thinking “wow, that is so simple but so impactful I’m so doing that – shoot I don’t have an end-of-hallway – I’m doing it somewhere else” is this one from the West Elm catalog-
I worked on this awhile back for a client, who didn’t have enough space to add furniture, but we still wanted to make it a “moment” (blech).
Two simple elements but we were so happy with how it came out. The wallpaper was DIYed with grasscloth and a stencil (more details here), and the mirror was from a local antique mall. Because the wallpaper texture was dull and the pattern large and geometric, I wanted a mirror that had that gilded vintage look and I was hoping to find a round one since the wall was rectangle. Duh. I wish the mirror was a tad bigger to balance out the scale a bit, but it was so perfect in every other way it won the contest. And it actually looks bigger in person.
So don’t ignore those end-of-hallways-why-dont-they-have-an-actual-name people. They can be so fun!
