The Process of Transformation!

While not done with the hallway makeover, we have made some major strides in the past few days. Below is an idea of some of these changes.
Pic 1: The new paint color:


Pic 2: The old collage. Ya'll know I love collages...
Pic 3: The New Collage. Large framed photos with mats. This was alot of mental work. Price checking, research, driving all over town, enlarging old photos etc. That layout was very thoughtfully designed by GroutHaus. Lots of measuring and thought goes into this, like are you hang the pics in order of oldest to newest, or have the grooms side of the family on one side of your wedding photo and brides on the other etc. Like I said, nothing about this was simple.
But dang it looks good! Need new light fixture, which I could change for about $20 if I knew how! Notice that stair rail below:
I painted it yesterday. It looks a million times better because the spindles had never been painted, just bought primed and had glue on them, and the rails were an awful cheap looking wood color.
I still have a lot to do, but to be honest I am kind of worn out! I have been VERY busy lately getting this house ready for Bro and Shauna's wedding shower and all these projects so I need a day off. Growing a human has me working at about half speed! I plan to do a post about all the gallery frames and costs and shopping around soon, hopefully to save you all the trouble I went through! More to come.... stay tuned.
