More in-progress shots of the hallway-subacqua

30 Jun

When the light shines in through the glass in the front door, it feels like the hallway is underwater — it’s a beautiful glowing acqua color.

None of these photos really shows the true color, but here they are anyway. Please note the invaluable help being provided by the pets.

The ceiling is a semi-gloss color called Spring Melt (Martha Stewart), but I think it’s too light and I may have to re-do it at some point. I’m reserving judgement until I have another light in the hallway. It looks kind of dingy, but it may just be the lighting situation.

I’ve decided to go back to plan A and just wallpaper the other wall after the plumbing project is done (when I suddenly come into a big pot of money). Hello… universe? I could really use $8,000. Thanks. (Let’s see what happens.)

      Those ARE the finished shots! I’ll try to take some better ones. I’m leaving the opposite wall as is (i.e. covered in dinge) until I do the upstairs plumbing and can then safely paper it. I wish I could capture the real color — it’s amazingly watery.
