About a year ago I painted stripes on one side of my hallway. (Read that post here.) It was just what was needed to liven up the space and give it a little character and I still love it. Here’s a few pics before stripe-age. (Yep, I’m making up my own words again.)
I know…pretty bad. Everything is so close together!! And unbalanced. I don’t know what I was thinking, but let’s not linger too long here shall we? not? Anways…
Here’s a few pics from last year after the striped treatment.
Way better, right? Maybe not amazing, but better? =0)
Well, the hallway has undergone another minor makeover, after I found my little flower petal, sunburst-mirror thingy at Target for $7.50, originally $29.99. I know peeps, believe me. That’s 75% off, so I was pretty excited. =0)
In addition to the mirror I added a few photos to oomph it up a little more.
I also added this number 8 to the top of the collage.
Eight seems like our family’s lucky number for a long list of reasons. I’ve been thinking of getting a very tiny tattoo of it just for fun, but until then I decided to frame it and put on our wall instead. =0)
So I started with this frame. I bought three of these for .79 cents a piece at a thrift store, so I have two more left to do who knows what with.
I spray painted it black, printed out a number 8 at the library since we are currently out of printer ink and keep forgetting to buy some, (lol!), and slapped that puppy in the frame and onto the wall.
At the same time I was at the library I also printed out this quote from L.M. Montgomery. Haley and I are currently reading Anne of Green Gables, one of my favorite books of all time. I love the entire series. I spray painted a Dollar Store frame black… and you probably get the idea. =0) (I hung this on the opposite wall, which I haven’t showed you yet, but will soon.)
