~hallway makeover~

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Remember back when we got our little baking niche in the kitchen wallpapered?
Well, that same day I also had Janet install the same wallpaper in our hallway niche.

Way back when, this area started as a coat closet.
It was always jam packed with off season coats and clothes and it drove me crazy.
I thought taking off the doors would not only make the space more inviting, but also visually open up the narrow hallway.

I added the white bead board years ago.
Then I added the bench with cubbies for hats, mittens, etc. in the winter, sunscreen, goggles, and towels in the summer.

After it was all wallpapered I went on the hunt for the perfect mirror and bench cushion.


I found the mirror at TJ Maxx.
I knew I wanted something round and I liked the shape of this one, and the color was perfect.


I went with Tonic Living for the bench cushion fabric and the cushion cover itself.
I had heard of other bloggers raving about their customer service and product.
They exceeded my expectations.
When the cushion cover arrived it was not only beautiful but it fit my existing cushions like a glove.
Not only that, but they were more than happy to answer my 5,000 emails before ordering.
Ok, maybe not 5,000, but there was a lot!







This is the fabric I ended up using. 
It's called Bristol Charcoal and you can find it here.
They sent me several samples and this one was the closest match to the color in the wallpaper.


Here are some of the other sources from this spot:
