An American Dream


     I know. It’s just a hallway. But it’s also another place to be creative. When we moved in it was an eggshell whitish color. Nothing interesting in here at all.  An old light that was the very first change we made to the house. The hallway linen closet had nice louvered doors, but we ended up removing them because they freaked the husband out. I on the other hand didn’t mind them, and wanted to paint them a crisp white. You may even say I loved them. But he was so against them we removed them and MONTHS later replaced them. There was also the same old carpet in the hall way that smothered the rest of the house. The ‘Foyer’ side of the hallway was just as dull. It didn’t have the carpet however, but a glue down vinyl oak colored plank. We kept that, it looks good against the darker floors we put in. Like a brighter landing pad for the foyer. There is also the old awkwardly placed hanging brass light that has yet to be touched. But here it is as of lately.
