Tricking Nick: A Hallway Makeover

Tricking Nick: A Hallway Makeover

Well! There was quite a debate yesterday about a tiny bit of paint on a vintage dresser.  Lots of yays, lots of nays.  You know how I feel about the issue: do whatever the heck you want with your furniture.  It’s YOUR furniture!  But here’s something I think we all can agree on: the makeover of this long and boring hallway.  (Unless there are some deeply devoted hollow-core door lovers out there. But please tell me there aren’t.)

Nick rehabbed each of his plain-jane doors by changing out the hardware and adding a dose of desperately needed interest with trim.  Actually, he claims his wife tricked him by simply asking him to trim their closet door, knowing full well that he wouldn’t stop until he had trimmed every door in the house. Only 13 of them.  Each side. So, technically, 26 in all.  What a guy! See exactly how he did it on his blog Ranch Burger.

    LOVE it – well done to this family! Makes such a difference! I can only imagine what it would look like if the doors were painted black. Ooooohhhh…..

    Wow, LOTS of doors! The after picture reminds me of the stateroom doors in the movie “Titanic” (meaning that they look great, but there’s so MANY! ;)).

    This project (door trim + floors) really added great character to that hallway!
