The hallway feeds into the kitchen (see above) and sitting room (last picture) and has a few in-built cupboards – which I’ve often contemplated painting (thoughts?).
This wall has always been blank. I painted it in a Farrow & Ball shade many moons ago (could it be Down Pipe? I can’t remember now!). I still love the colour, but it needed something more!
And here’s where the mirror came into the picture! Here’s a step by step guide of my DIY project:
2. I measured out exactly where I wanted the hooks to go beforehand, ensuring they were centred and also a good height from the floor for bags and jackets (102 cm from the underside of the rack to the floor). I also used a spirit level to ensure it was straight.
3. And then all that was required was a good polish!
I have to say the mirror instantly lit up the narrow space and together with the hooks, makes better use of the space. It’s also handy to have a mirror near the entrance and extra hooks.
It’s just a simple DIY but I thought I’d share it all the same – you never know, you might just have some empty wall space waiting for some TLC, in which case, I hope this inspires you.
I wonder how long our hallway will stay this tidy? I give it 5 minutes!! Oh well, life is designed to be a little messy, and it’s a real sign of summer when balls, scooters, swim stuff and whatever else start to appear!
Next stop, a new light – I haven’t decided which yet, tips welcome!
So, Friends, that’s it from me this week. I hope you have a wonderful couple of days, see you Monday.
