How many times can a girl blog about a tiny little hallway/mudroom? The answer to that question is limitless! I feel like I have shown you this small space 5,652,396 times. And then I remind myself that my blog isn’t even a year old yet, so it hasn’t been quite as many times as it feels like.
I can’t help it. I am not that blogger who waits until my entire space is perfection before I show it to you. I am the girl who shows you the good, the bad, and the ugly. And girlfriend, sometimes it’s ugly! I’m not gonna lie!
The ceiling light in this hallway was a boob light. A boob light that was clearly visible when you walk in my front door. It had to go. And I did not have the time to put much effort into it, so one day while perusing the aisles of Homegoods, I snatched up this drum shade, and thought it might work to disguise the boob. This is the view you see when you walk in my front door now.
It is not quite as bright in this space as I would like it to be, but I am usually doing laundry when I am down here, and there is a bright fluorescent light in that closet, so no worries.
This is not a permanent solution. I would like to purchase and install a cute ceiling light at some point. But for now, I think it looks so much better!
What do you think of my temporary boob light solution? I might paint the little brass base or antique it somehow. Believe it or not, I am still not finished with this space! I have a few little odds and ends to finish up before I can call it done, but compared to where we started, I feel utter joy! Take a peek.
