Hallway Nook Makeover

When we moved into our home, all the walls were white and the cabinets were builder grade oak. I explored some options on how to bring some personality into this hallway nook and decided to use paint, stencils, floating glass shelves, and a Rustoleum cabinet transformation kit.
First, I painted the inside wall Zen by Benjamin Moore and then I used a moroccan stencil to apply metallic silver paint.
After finishing the wall stencil, I installed 2 floating glass shelves that I ordered at a glass store to fit into the space. I bought floating shelf brackets on Ebay that install on the back wall so it appears that the glass is floating, hence floating glass shelves!
Next, I refinished the hallway cabinet. I bought the Rustoleum cabinet transformation kit in espresso which includes the stain, poly, and poly remover. Remove the poly from the cabinet before you re-stain it.
Apply the stain to the cabinet with a cheese cloth or paint brush. Finish it off with a coat of poly to seal in the perfection! Don't set anything on it for at least 48 hours.
I love the statement it makes in the hallway now compared to the white, bare hallway before. The hard part is to decide what to put on the amazing floating shelves! To see the full tutorial, visit Mommy's Tool Belt.

    Awesome renovation! So many people have similar niches in their homes and don't make it a focal point with true function. Great job!

      Thanks, it's so true! It was begging to be the star of the hallway :)

    Beautiful job ! I notice the top display has a lot of room , if possible , moving both glass shelf higher, giving more room to ur gold display , it will give more focus point , like 4 to 6 inch from top of ur gold display!
