Most Revered Hallway

This little hallway of ours has come a long way since day one in our NC abode. Let’s travel back, shall we?

Foyer Before

Blue and white and orangey floors all over. Whew, people. Am I the only one that feels a little dizzy taking all that gloriousness in?

Good news in our neck of the woods, we no longer have pink walls. They’re officially pewter walls!

Revere Pewter in Entry

Since this is the first room you see when you enter the house, I wanted something classic and understated. After using Revere Pewter in past houses, I knew it would fit the bill.

I’m seriously smitten. I especially love how it looks against the crisp, white wainscoting!

Now that we have a few more rooms finished around here, you can see how the entry looks from the Living Room, looking out onto Rachel’s room.

We’ve got Edgecomb Gray in the Living Room, for reference.

I can tell you one thing – painting stairwells = a serious pain in the bondonka donk. Jay had to actually get our outside ladder to edge the top, and then use a go go gadget arm movement to get in on the rest of that action.

I watched. And took pictures. And cheered him on. 😀

Painting Tall Stairwell

Now that it’s done though, I feel pretty good temporarily checking the foyer off the to-do list.

A few things still drive me bonkers – like our mismatched floors…

Provincial Floor Stain

And our vintage chic light fixtures…

But ya know, what the hey – it doesn’t look like this and I’m going to come out and say it – that’s progress amigos.

Oh and a bit fat THANK YOU – for all the kind words on our exciting announcement yesterday. A nursery post or two will definitely be in the works over the next few months 🙂

  1. That light fixture is actually totally doable. Consider spray painting it oil rubbed bronze and swap out the glass for a better shaped one. Home Depot has some pretty cute options, actually. Including a round hand blown glass option for $11. Check out their website for it. Throw an Edison bulb in it and you are good to go. So for less than $20 you have a really great looking light fixture.
