The BEFORE

My long, dark hallway needed some sprucing up

Step 1: Frost the glass

I had an old storm window lying around that I spray painted with Rust-Oleum Frosted Glass.

Step 2: Add the LEDs

I added LED strips to the back of the window. They have a sticky backing that adheres to the window.

Step 3: Hang L brackets

I hung L brackets on the wall at the end of the hallway to hang the frame from.

AFTER! I added a valance and hung the window

Everyone that sees it thinks it's a real window. It brightens up the hall and makes me smile every time I walk by.

The decor

I found this first piece at a junk stand on a trip and we love it!

Banishing the Boring Narrow Hallway

We found this (very heavy) metal lampshade at a flea market. I loved the patina & Hubs converted it to a fixture.

The after photo! What a difference!

I now love my "new" (40 year old) hall and the one-of-a-kind light fixture that my brilliant Hubs helped me create.
