Tackle It Tuesday #18 - Hammer Time

Our walls haven't been painted and the wallpaper hasn't been taken down, but I had to get something up on the walls. It's amazing how much more lived in our house feels now with a few simple changes.


This is our foyer and the very first thing you see when you walk into the house. Add a mirror and . . .

My mother in law gave me this mirror for Christmas last year. I love it! I'm not sure what that inner circle is all about, must be the flash or something.


I know the pantry door is not technically a wall, but hanging a shelf does make a difference.



This is Kale's bedroom. He has this one little sad window right in the middle of his wall. My goal was to use a curtain to create the illusion of a larger window.

I didn't quite reach my goal - this window treatment is still a work in progress and could have a post of its own. It's just too short and should go all the way to the floor. I bought some more material so it will probably be my tackle for next week.

Disclosure statement: My sweet husband actually hung everything - I just encouraged him along the way!

I love curtains and mirrors they add life around the house and easily interchangeable too. :) It's also great to have someone to assist you with the tackle you are doing :). You must be a real good persuader. How do you persuade hubby? :P

It all looks great. That mirror completely changes the way the entry looks!! I agree on the longer curtains, I think that would make a huge difference.

I have two of those closet door organizers on my pantry door - one on the top and one on the bottom. They are a great storage space. I'm snagging them from our current home and taking them to our new place.
