{finished painting project}

I'm a bit late with this post...as I promised it right after the entryway reveal. Forgive me? :)

So I'm not sure what to call this space in our house because it is part stairwell, part hallway, part family room. When we bought the house, it looked like this...


And this...


Crazy color scheme? Check.
Rickety railing? Check.
Oddly placed 80's light fixture? Check.

Before we even moved in, we had that scary railing replaced with a half wall. Here it was in progress...


And here is that same space after we my lovely mother-in-law painted the room a lighter shade of gray and we moved our family room into the space...


Here is the hallway before...


And after...


And I am happy to report that we finally have a matching stairwell! First time we've ever hired a painter and it was well worth it. (and the $50 (!!) he charged us)..no way was I going to get on a ladder on stairs. Here is how it looks now...


It feels so good to finally have this space one cohesive and calming color. Now we just need to replace that unfortunate light fixture and the transformation will be complete!
