Making Cozy out of Boring
We have a very long and narrow hallway. It is very boring and leaves little room for decoration. Even the pictures hung on each side often get bumped. Daily I look down the hall from the kitchen and just see blah--or our bathroom which is the door on the left.
I decided to add this little table and lamp to brighten things up. There was not a plug in, so we had to run the cord to the plug behind my sons bedroom door. So far it is working and not getting bumped or turned over. Only time will tell.
Much more cozy, wouldn't you say? Both of my children have commented about it.
The table came from a junk-tique store a few years ago and the paint is very chipy. I may paint it soon, but didn't let that stop me from using it today.
The white bowl is one of two and they are the only things I own that belonged to my dear Papa who passed away when I was in high school.
I added a frame from the $1 section at Target, cut some brown scrapbook paper to fit and hot glued this plaster lion head on it. First I tried just the lion head, but it needed something else. The frame pulled it all together. My hubby bought me the lion head over 12 years ago. I have three of them, all different sizes. They have been everywhere in our house. Love them!!
Have you made something cozy today? Give it a try.
