DIY! Hallway Facelift

Late one night, I decided one of my hallways needed a facelift.
(or botox at the very least!)
Anyway, since all sane people paint at 10:30 pm, I was ready to go.
The mood struck and I had to get started on this hallway

I last painted this hallway - which is a thorough fare in my home - 6 years ago...it was so time for a facelift! The house is in a constant state of flux as it is...but I am really wanting some fresh paint on all of the walls.

I had some Refresh Paint from Dutch Boy all ready and waiting for me. The color is a gorgeous neutral shade called Water Fowl. As soon as I tested it on the wall, I knew I selected the right color.

It is extremely hard to get a photo of this hallway to show you the total transformation.
Just trust me - it looks amazing!
The perfect spot for my Family Command Center and sweet signs!

I just love what paint can do

Dutch Boy Refresh Paint, Satin Finish, Water Fowl
Purdy Paintbrush
Purdy Roller
Paint tray
Painters tape, optional (I did not use it)


You can see the full tutorial over a The DIY Club!

Prep the walls...Cut in...Paint away
Rehang and refresh!

BEFORE - Yellow

AFTER- Water Fowl

I LOVE the way this looks...
just made me realize how badly this hallway needed a little love!

What have you painted lately?

  1. Looks great! I love the new color!

    When you have kids, sometimes it's just easier to do things late in the evening after they have gone to bed. I remember when my husband and I tiled our laundry room. We started as soon as the kids were in bed and finished around midnight.

  2. Ah! I love seeing the signs hanging up! So glad you liked them :) They look beautiful in your hallway and I love that paint color!!!! Sharing this on my facebook page!

  3. Hey, if I can iron and wash the floors at 10:30pm, you sure as heck can paint! Looks great BTW. Wanting to paint badly. My bedroom is driving me insane.
    Happy New Year Holly!!!


Thanks for stopping by and joining the conversation! I sure hope you come back for more!
