I have recently moved into a new home, that just happens to be built in 1890. Its is defiantly outdated and in need of a makeover. I am ready to start on the hallway, which is dark and drab at the moment. I am just doing a quick update now, but I would eventually like to have a new stair railing and post made. It was once a duplex, and it must have been removed at that time.
I want to lighten it up with white walls, and paint the doors high gloss black to show off their detail. I have a lantern style light that I hope will fit, and I am considering this mirror from Target.
I want to paint a stair runner in grey something like the pic below.
I also think these painted frames may be a really nice detail to draw your eye up to the keyhole window at the top of the stairs.
