Upstairs hallway revamp

A once neglected corner of our upstairs hallway outside our office and bathroom, gets its own vintage flair. We built a new console table and added some bits from around the house.

the pillars were found at a local antique store and cut down to the right height. we added a piece of salvaged barnboard for a top and we were off.

i am really enjoying the addition of gold and brass in our home right now. the clipboard with the photo is of a family member who used to be a shoemaker. the zebra print is by Eye Poetry Photography. a photo of my great-grandfather lives in the antique mason jar

the BEFORE: it was just a home for some leftovers

another use for those rustic pitchers, an ostrich egg holder (i have a great brown one like this for sale in my etsy shop. must not keep everything, it's hard work i tell ya)

ironstone soap dish, or key holder. whatever blows your skirt up!

more ironstone, a lawn bowling case and a neat wood box find their new homes.

i am hoping to add a wall sconce to this mix but, in my quest for something old and original it will have to wait until it jumps out at me or i make something. for now this corner makes me happy.

not bad for a 35.00 makeover i think.
Have a great day



  1. Simply awesome! Love the look!

  2. Beautiful! I particularly like the contrasts between light and dark. Great textures, too. Great job.


Leave me a note. I'd love to hear from you.
