It's hard to make something like a hallway priority when making DIY plans for the house. However, it's hard to have a hallway as ridiculously bad as ours was. Since the fix was purely cosmetic, I'm rather shocked that it good me this long to get it done.
Plastic wood-look trim that was so carefully cut out to accomodate various thermostats and ornate switch plates.
A wall of vents (baseboard and wall!) that didn't actually work anymore (not pictured). I wish I had a photo since those awful vents were the first thing you saw from the front door. Ugh.This is better:
New paneling, new trim, new paint! New light fixture (not pictured)...no more weird shadows thrown all over the place.
Off to say goodbye to the last of the mauve carpet...stay tuned!
