Lots of blank, white space. Like a giant snowy expanse. But not anymore, my friends. Here's what things are lookin' like in the ol' back hallway as of now:
And there it is! A small, very small space that has now been completely maximized for our daily lives. Sometimes I found myself just kind of standing back there, because the space makes me so happy. What also makes me happy is that the back hallway "redo" cost only $30. It might not exactly be the Pottery Barn daily system that first inspired this whole project, but it works perfectly for us, serves all our needs, and it saved us about $300.
And you see that little beauty peeking out from the kitchen on the right there? Stay tuned next week to hear all about it!
