My Lovely Hallway

We have been working on many little projects this week trying to get the house put back together. We repainted the hallway {yes, we use child labor, don't judge} 
The color is "fine grain" so it's a very subtle color.



And here it is with some of my favorite things...


I spray painted all of my frames black and will be adding fun color as I go.

Here are some of my favorite photos.

1. My parent's at their junior prom. {seriously, does it get any cuter than that?}
2.My all time favorite picture of my 3 oldest kids.
3. A picture of my Mom when she was about 3.
4. My brother's police department picture, makes me so proud.

And here are some other fun finds...

1. "Oh Happy Day" print from Whatever
2. Hoop art form Goose+Trisser
3. A piece of beautiful scrapbook paper. I love the colors in this!
4. A page from a book that my hubby had growing up. It's the sweetest illustration of all the kids looking up at the moon. I was so excited when I found this.

That's my lovely hallway!

One more thing...
My sweet friend Rachel over at Love is Rising, just started selling some awesome v-neck tee's to help fund their adoption. Very Urban Outfitters like. You can check out her blog post here for further info, to see the tee's and learn how to order.   Go check out Rachel's blog and support her, you will love her and her story instantly, I promise.

I love that paint color - I'm thinking that kind of shade for my bedroom. Such fun pictures you've picked out for your hall as well! Can't wait to see it all done. Painting is so fun to me!
