Thanks to litalita3 for sharing her hallway moment-in-progress with us. And it's also proof that even un-perfected moments can still make you seriously happy AND provide great inspiration to the rest of us.
This moment is in progress. Still waiting to finish the chairs, procure/DIY new sofa table (just rearranged everything in the apartment). But I feel so happy seeing the entry way. Love that the purses are hung, the shoes have a place and there's somewhere to sit. Not to mention being able to do one final outfit check before heading out the door.
First: excellent point about the mirrors by the door: exit mirrors are made of awesome. One final check to make sure nothing embarrassing is happening with your face/outfit/hair etc.
Second: I bet you thought the hallway was wallpapered? Yeah, I did too. LitaLita has a little surprise factoid about that wall…
Oh, and the wall… I wanted wall paper — not so good in an apartment. One night I got a burr up my ass and used two sample pots of grey paint and a one-inch foam brush to create the patterened wall.
My mind is officially blown. Maybe if we join our collective minds and suggest some shoe racks that DON'T fall down all the time for LitaLita, she'll give us more details about how to make a patterned wall just like that.
