Hallway sneaky peak

Ok, I promised you a reveal this week and as it is Sunday today is my last opportunity.
We've been looking to wallpaper our hall for ages.
We decided on dandelion in cocoa by Porters paints but had a feeling that it may be a little too dark, then we did the sums and realised we'd need over $800 worth of paper to do it, Hmmm not so thrifty...

Then I heard Graham & Brown were having a sale, so in keeping with the thrifty theme I chose only from the sale items (this was not easy as there were so many of the full priced papers I wanted and the full priced ones are actually a very reasonable price)

 I have to say though I love my choice, its perfect for a bland hallway and it was a quarter of the price of our original idea.
Gotta love thrift.


Just a small sneaky peak for now as the rest of the photos include another makeover, remember this post when I found those doors? well they have been installed but need some finishing touches before Ill let you see them. Till then my lovlies.

  5. There are so many gorgeous wallpapers around - so hard to make a decision but you've done a great job!

  6. Wow, it looks stunning! I'm hoping to put some wallpaper in our bedroom when it is renovated - I'll be looking for a thrifty version too! Thanks for sharing - can't wait to see those doors. Michelle

  7. Thanks everyone, Im working on those doors now. @ Michelle,the G&B website is definatly worth a look, most of the sale items are still available but even the full price one's are only $150 per roll.

  8. Hi! I just found your blog through Hand Made Me, I love all of your fabulously inspirational pictures! I also adore your new hallway, I'm not usually one for wallpaper but after seeing yours and the inspiration pics I just might have to change my mind!


I do love reading your comments, thankyou so much for stopping by.
