Hallway update + DIY

This hallway is basically the first thing people see when they walk in our house, I wanted it to make a statement.
So first we took out the boring flushmount standard white light

  
and replaced it with this beauty❤️

I posted this picture on social media and within minutes no less than 10 people messaged me to tell me how dope this thing was.

 
I have a vision for my house and I’m glad so many people reached out to let me know they appreciate it! 

   
It can close or open depending on how much light you want.

In the daytime it looks like this

 
Next up for hallway transformation was a console table. To be honest I wasn’t looking for one, I knew I’d need one but it just wasn’t a priority at this point. We have a rack that we can hang our keys on, and we have other projects to worry about and boxes to finish unpacking.

But while I’m out I always keep my eyes open for things I like. Like these cool shiny decor items

    

I ended up taking the ampersand home with me. 
And then I found this table.  

  
It was so cute.

It was different than a lot of other boring console tables I’ve seen on the web. I had to have it for myself.

So I bought it.

But the legs were a little too pale for my liking.

  
Look how nice it looks fits in this space!

But something had to be done about those legs.

  
I tapped off the white tips, and sanded down the part I wanted to stain. I didn’t do a good enough job taping off the white, note to self don’t be stingy with the tape.

   
  

 
And in the end I’m soo happy with the final result! 

The legs go really well with the darker floors now.

    Love the hall light and you certainly got a bargain with the table….what a creative soul you are ! You remind me of my youngest sister Shona, who has a knack for a bargain and personalising it …oh, wait, I do too! …and Shona’s daughter, my niece Rachel …it’s in the genes…lol …xxx
