I have this awkward small hallway going from my living room to the master bedroom. For the longest time it was completely empty. I looked really sad! I then added this chair, but alone it was too blah! I recently went into our attic and came across an old cheapo shelf that was black. I knew the black wasn’t going to work, so I spray painted and added some glaze to give it a more aged look.
I stole the pillow from my couch and the wreath from my bedroom door. I lightly painted the “B” with the same spray paint (Krylon’s Bahama Sea in Gloss) and did a dry wash with some white paint. Basically I slapped on white painted with a brush and took some off with a paper towel. The shell is from our honeymoon and has had many different homes. The vase on the floor is from Pier 1 and I purchased it about 7 years ago.
I am loving this look!! By the way, I took this picture on Thursday and the loose curl look is still going strong!! I am LOVING only washing my hair twice a week. I do have to add that I could not do this a few years ago. With age comes a less oily scalp. Yay for being old! Also dry shampoo is my best friend. If you have not tried it, you must!! I use Tresmmee’ (sp?) or Suave. All can be found at Wal-mart or Target.
As I said before, I am getting my hair trimmed and highlighted this Saturday and I am seriously thinking about getting bangs. Bangs are a serious commitment! I had them several years ago and I loved them. However, I ended up growing them out. What do you think?
