It's one of those things that I'm completely smitten with. I'm a sucker for graphic patterns and especially black and white patterns. Always have been, just ask my mom.
Here it is, I will explain everything at the end of the post.
When I spotted a similar blanket to the Pia Wallen Large Cross Blanket in Kristen's post about her son's room makeover, I had a light bulb moment and knew exactly what I wanted to do in my hallway. If you have been following me for a while then you know that I have been itching to change my hallway. I was so tired of the stripes.
The white that I used for the wall is from Valspar and it is eggshell Ultra White (7006-24).
The black for the accent wall is also Valspar and is eggshell Dark Kettle Black (4011-2).
The crosses are wall vinyl again and I made them myself. Should I add them to the shop? I'm thinking yes ;)
All in all this project didn't cost me anything because:
• I had the black wall vinyl (I have a huge stash of all colors)
• I had a Lowes gift card from Christmas to buy the paint
• I had the star star chandelier, which is an old Pier1 candle holder (click HERE to see it in its original state in my 2012 Christmas tour). I had recently rub-n-buffed it gold. All I had to do yet is paint the pendant part gold to match the star and hang it over the light bulb.
It's a classic work with what you have project since I also had the owl already. Do you remember my H&M dishtowel canvas art (click HERE to see)? That's what it is and it looks so much better there.
I retired the cardboard deer head for now. I had him for almost 5 years and I felt it was time to stash him away.
And here, just as a reminder to show you what the hallway looked like before:
Oops, nice toilet!

I'm so happy with my new hallway and Pier1 candle holder chandelier. And I'm currently working on the reversed color combo. So check back next week (UPDATE: click HERE to see the closet) !
