The hallway gallery wall is almost finished. I thought I’d share the progress so far. Since the hallway is quite narrow it was a bit of a challenge to capture the entire wall. So I included a video that shows the space in its entirety, as well as a few design tips, at the end of the post.
Last week I shared some very inexpensive seashell art that was so easy to create.
The long hallway is just 36 inches wide. It has no windows or skylights and therefore very dark. In short, it was a dreary blank canvas that held a variety of artwork that was not cohesive at all.
Keep reading to see the new art collection and video.
The start of the transformation was the center artwork. The frame was lightened up with a fresh coat of paint.
The vintage Italian frames also received a coat of paint and new images of seaside creatures.
Using the same frame the train print was replaced by a seaside print found at Hobby Lobby for $4.00.
(I should mention that all of the artwork was hung using a level. Sadly, whoever installed the ugly doorbell did not use a level and it shows. Contractors please take pride in your work. :(
The dreary “BEFORE”.
The happy ever “AFTER”.
The video shows how dark the actual hallway is but brightened considerably by the light color palette. It also includes a few design tips.
Altogether the wall was created for under $10.50 which included the seashore print and four canvases. I had the shells and acrylic paint on hand from previous projects.
