Hey there! Hope you all had a fine weekend! I spent the weekend working on a few projects, like building an upholstered ottoman, and also taking a very cool class. I hope to share both with you later this week.
The best part of our weekend was spent working on our Alma Project, transforming the bare walls of the entryway to not only provide more storage, but also make this hallway a much more functional space to help the families living within these walls stay organized.
Take a peek at what we started with in the morning:
And ended up with in the afternoon!
So much better!
I started by painting the hallway in Kelly Moore’s ‘Graystone’, a nice neutral tan color. Usually I opt for Ben Moore paints, but KM was right down the street, and I was color matching the new paint in the great room (more on that to come!) I chose these wide plank grooved panels from Lowe’s because the adjacent kitchen has the same style paneling on the lower half of the walls, but in that icky 1970’s brown. I had all of the new panels cut in the lumber department. I intend to prime and paint those brown panels in the kitchen and eating area to pull all three spaces together and make it more fresh and modern.
