UncategorizedOur New White Room February 10, 2012Like I said yesterday, I have a white room to share today. I don’t have as much done to show as I’d like, but I’ll share the progress. I’ve never posted our hallway because it was just plain tan with nothing going on. And because a narrow hallway in an old house is really difficult to get some good pictures of! But, I’m trying. For the last couple of weeks, we’ve been working on this hallway. I’ll try to describe how it was set up first. See the doorway by the fireplace in our living room? That goes into the center of our hallway. Our hallway is a little strange, but I’m choosing to see it’s good qualities! It doesn’t run straight like a normal hallway. From this door, you can go around to the right to a guest bathroom and guest bedroom, you can go straight into another guest bedroom, or turn left down the hall to our master bedroom and bath. Confusing? I know! Up until this point, our master bedroom and bath have both been off the hall, not closed off together like a suite. I guess that fits the old style of the house! Master suites are more of a new thing. So, we decided that we were going to build a wall in the hallway, moving our master bedroom door so that it now closes in our bathroom. Here’s the before: This is the left side of the hallway I was describing. Here’s the in progress shot from the front or hallway side: Here’s the view from our bedroom before (the little alcove on the left goes into our bathroom and the closed door straight ahead is a guest room – see how it was all off the hallway?): Sorry for the terrible pictures – there is no natural light in a hallway, which makes good photos pretty tough! Here’s the in-progress view from our bedroom: And here’s how it looks now…not nearly finished, but in progress: As you can see, we’re still in the process of finishing up the painting, so it’s looking a little different than it will finished. But, hopefully you get the idea! I didn’t get a shot from the bedroom side…now that we’ve built this wall, the only hallway light is out in the main portion of the hall. So, the bedroom side is now very dark. We’re adding a light in there and hopefully I’ll have a shot of that side very soon. I’ll be back soon with exactly why I chose the white paint and what my vision is for this little area. Happy Friday y’all! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
