And There's a Hallway!

I mentioned last week that we were going to paint the hallway. The mission was a total success and I love the mermaid song. I know- this sounds like it's mermaid song week, but I promise that it's not.

The hallway was just in desperate need of some color.

As you remember, this is what the hallway looked like.


After lots and lots of paint stirring (it'd been sitting in the basement for like two months) I started on it. It only took two coats for a really nice finish.


I used yellow Frog Tape this time, as I find it sticks to our wood baseboards better than the green. For some reason the green doesn't like our old wood as much- the yellow is perfect though.


It also looks great with the recliner, which is the goal with everything, after all.


What do you think? I love, love, love it :)

  2. Love it! I really like bright colors in smaller spaces like that. And I had no idea there WAS yellow frog tape!

    1. Yep! It's for delicate surfaces. Like if you were painting stripes or something and the paint was less than 24 hours old. For some reason since it's gentler it adheres to my wood (I think the finish is so old it's hard for things to grip it) better than the green.

  3. It makes your entrance really pop! You need to take a picture of what it looks like walking through the front door!

  4. Oooo pretty! Have you thought of maybe pulling the console off the wall and letting it float in the center and shifting the art over too? Maybe putting a large plant in the corner instead would make it feel more roomy. It all just kind of feels shoved to the corner right now. Just a thought! Love how it's coming along. :)

    1. Honestly, that had never even occurred to me. You are a genius. I can't do the plant because the dogs will "use it" but now you've got me thinking!

    1. Do you have this chair too?! I would LOVE to see what you did with it if you do! It was the first thing we bought for the house so everything has kind of been designed around it. So far I can say with 100% accuracy that the teal is mermaid song by behr and the yellow is pencil by Martha Stewart.
