Hallway entrance paint makeover

This hallway is brighter and more inviting after a quick and easy update using paint.





The project


We are making slow progress refreshing our little Victorian cottage with a toddler, but we've been able to finish our hallway.


There are some details we wanted to retain including the pendant light, the tiled floor and the timber door. Everything else needed a decent sand and a fresh coat of paint.


We used British Paints Grey Spirit on the walls and British Paints Vivid White Semi Gloss Water-Based Enamel on the wood.
