Hallway entrance makeover

Hallway entrance makeover

We are making slow progress refreshing our little Victorian cottage with a toddler (and mainly only in any spare time we have on weekends) BUT we have made a start and finished our hallway!

 

There are some details we wanted to retain including the pendant light, the tiled floor and the timber door. Everything else just needed a decent sand and a fresh coast of paint or two. Here is the hallway before (from the for sale listing - not our furniture!) and after.

After

We used British Paints Grey Spirit on the walls and British Paints Vivid White semi gloss water based enamel on the wood. 

 

Next project: turning an old laundry into a bedroom!

That looks lovely @Gwandalan_Tales. Well done. I'm glad you kept the timber door as is. Looking forward to seeing what else you've done.

This looks great! Grey with white trim is definitely on trend at the moment
