I’ll admit that these aren’t the most exciting before and after pictures, but I spent forever working on this hallway so humor me!
Painting stained trim and doors is awful. It’s so tedious with all the sanding, taping, priming, and multiple coats of paint. Once the trim was finished I noticed that the drywall was in terrible shape, so I applied many coats of spackle to smooth things over as much as possible. Then I painted the ceiling and the walls. The builder that decided this hallway only needed a one bulb light fixture was not the brightest. (Get it, not the brightest?) Just look how dark and creepy the hallway was in the before shot! I swapped out the light fixture for track lighting with three 50 watt bulbs. Now it looks like a hallway should look, instead of like something out of a serial killer’s basement.
