Hey guys! I always had a hard time trying to figure out what to do with my little hallway right when you walk in from the garage. It’s a tiny area. Somehow all of our shoes, coats, bags, and random toys piled up right inside the door. I needed to figure out somethin’!! So, about 2 years ago I finally came across a cheap solution to the chaos.
For the coat rack, I took a 1×4 piece of wood, measured the lengths I wanted, cut the boards and stained them with our fav-Minwax Provincial. I ordered the hooks online, but it was about 2 years ago…I don’t remember where I bought them from. I screwed the hooks into the wood, used my level to hang the boards, then screwed the boards into studs in the wall. Easy peasy. And cheap. I think the hooks were about $3 or $4 each.
The sign is from a piece of old barn wood. I love old barn wood. And old barns. Okay, that’s besides the point. I used my sister’s Cricut for the stencils. I just love the Cricut…I need one of my own. The sign was easy too. I painted the piece of barn wood white, let it dry, sanded it to rough it up a little, then used my stencils to paint on the lettering, let it dry and sanded a tad more. Voila! I always admire it as I walk through the hallway. It’s just pretty.
These frames were purchased from Meijer a while back. They were just my style and I didn’t have to do a thing to them. They are 8×10, white and already distressed. They took the work out for me! I don’t recall how much they were, but I just love them! And I just love those sweet babies in the pictures even more!
My Red Hunter Boots. Oh how I love my red Hunter boots. My hubby bought them for me over a year ago and I wear them probably every day at some point. I wear them anywhere, any season, even to work in the yard & dirt. They started to “bloom” or fade a little (which is typical for Hunter boots) but I took a little olive oil, rubbed it on them and they are back to shining away.
My trash can. I’ve gotta say, my kitchen doesn’t have a perfect spot for a trash can, so I put the trash can right off of the kitchen in this hallway. Eventually, when we re-do the kitchen, I’m going to make a spot for the trash can so it frees up some space in my hallway and I can put a little bench or something there instead. Until then, this is where my wooden trash can holder stays. Hope you enjoyed checking out my little hallway. Thank you all so much for following along.
