our hallway used to look like this:
the hallway door had a dead bolt on it...strange! we felt like the solid wood door to the hallway made the house feel smaller and disjointed.
just removing the door was a step in the right direction(along with the newly stained wood floors)
we scored this beauty for $25 at ReStore
this was actually our first purchase for our first house!
i painted it green and put in a fun hallway runner.
we still need to pick up a glass door handle for the door. we are also adding a little length to the door so that it isn't so short. i'm sure we will also hang a fun fixture in the hallway, and eventually hang stuff on the walls...who knows, maybe i'll even do a fun wall treatment down the hallway.
