After a bumpy couple of weeks (not having a full time job is SO glamorous, people!), I'm back on track to finish the seafoam hallway. Today I gave it a coat of primer after mending the gaping hole in the drywall created when the electrician punched through to rewire the outlet in our laundry closet. I was too embarrassed to take a Before picture, but here's the After.
Right. Not very impressive without a Before. But I can assure you it looked terrible this morning. The hole was about 6" wide and because it was primarily at the ceiling, patching it up was tough. But now it's done and the hallway is practically gleaming from the primer. Ready for some seafoam green!
One of my challenges for the hallway was finding some art to cover up the fuse box. Let me tell you, it's not easy to find something with the right dimensions, aesthetic, and color palette! But eventually the right piece suggested itself.
I found it at Modish Vintage, via Etsy (of course). Picture is from Modish Vintage also. I love the idea of having some actual original art in the hallway. As much as I enjoy prints, there's just no substitute for seeing the texture of brush strokes. And I think it will contrast nicely with the seafoam, in addition to covering up the fuse box perfectly.
