Zdenka & Zafar’s Front Hall: Part 4 Almost Done!

January 16, 2012 — Leave a comment

Hallway w/ New Hooks, shelves, benches, mirror, trim, cork board & chalkboard

I was over at Zdenka’s house last week to start talking about her Living Room. While I was there I checked in on the front hall, which I am happy to report is being very well used! The shelves and mirror are  up. She and Zafar painted the trim and installed the chalkboard paint and the cork board. Zdenka also finished sewing the cushions for the benches. They came out beautifully! The only change was that the mirror had to be moved over because when mounting it they hit a duct in its original location. It actually works well to the side and she added a couple of pieces of art next to it. Next on the list are a couple of small cubbies for mail at the back of the space (narrow enough to fit with the door to the utility room open) and framing up family photos in white frames to hang going up the staircase.

Hallway w/ new Shelving, Hooks & Baskets (Large Hooks are the Mudroom hooks, $8 from Anthropologie)

Bench Cushion w/ Brown Piping sitting on Tjusig Bench ($59.99) from Ikea. Fabric is Robert Allen Mandala Azure ($17.98 a yard from Fabric.com)

Kids Bench: This is the small Tjusig shoe rack from Ikea ($39.99) that we used as a short bench for the girls to sit on.

New Oval Mirror helps to soften the space (Aldo from Overstock, $95.99)

So as a reminder here is where we started:
