This week I started freshening up the hallway from our dining room to our kitchen using left over paint I had.
You can see the hallway from the living room. The door desperately needed painting. I wish I had remembered to take a before pic but I just jumped right in there and started.
|The door was just standard white and had seen better days since the boys hang their backpacks here. I decided to use left over Sherwin Williams Rainwashed that I had painted our master bedroom with in the Spring.|
|Next I decided that the black frame on the chalk board was no longer going to work. I wanted to paint it gold to mimic vintage gold frames that I love so much.|
|DecoArt Elegant Finish Metallic Paint in Glorious Gold is just the perfect gold to achieve a vintage gold look.|
|I was going to glaze the door but decided to just lightly distress the edges so that the white would peek thru. That way when it starts showing wear again it will look like it was intentional!;)|
|HobyLobby hooks perfect for the boys to hang their backpacks on.|
|This was a quick update that only took a few hours and cost nothing.|
|It is hard to get pictures.|
|I ended up standing in our pantry to get a full view. I am so glad that I decided to paint the door. It now matches the door out to our patio that I painted awhile back. I have updated the other three doors in the hallway as well but I will share those in another post.|
