If you remember, I told you that I was diverted by 2 projects– really, they were both more of an SOS! The 1st was my sister-in-law’s laundry room dilemma, the 2nd was her aunt’s lo-o-o-n-g hallway. What do you do with it? H-E-L-P-!
It makes me think of a hotel corridor. Just more than 29ft and narrow, with 3 bedrm doors, 1 bathrm door, a linen closet, the basement door–AND–the door leading to and from the mudroom and garage!
7 doors! Yikes! I need to think about this one for a minute.
Well, the obvious is that it’s long, boring, and totally plain. I know it’s already incredibly busy with so many doors, but—I’m thinking it would be interesting to add architectural details like chair rail, and picture frame molding. And let’s paint it into the walls to create a subtle texture!
Using the 6-panel doors as a guide, I hung the chair rail at the sight line of the bottom panel and the picture frames at the middle panel. Since there are three substantial wall sections–let’s create a few gallery walls for family photos and personal artifacts!
What a day—I’m completely done in from crawling around on the floor, and all the ups and downs on the ladder to plot out the levels and boxes! Then– in and out of the cold garage to cut everything, and repeat the crawling and ladder actions to install everything! Calgon–take me away…!
Tomorrow—I’ll counter sink any raised brads, putty, sand—and paint. Gosh–I hope I can get it all in one day. I’ll share photos of the finished hall, but for now, here it is roughed in!
Oh! BTW–I’m doing this with a major sinus infection, in yet another major snow storm, while Aunt Joann is in Mexico– snorkeling and basking in the sunshine for 2 weeks…
What’s wrong with this picture….?!? –Cat
