Hallway Bookshelves: A Little Update

Hallway Bookshelves: A Little Update

Last summer I styled our hallway bookshelves that sit at the top of our stairs, and I wrote about them here.

Since then, I have slowly been giving these hallway bookshelves a little update. For the most part it was unintentional… it just sort of evolved as life happened.

Hallway Bookshelves: A Little Update!

  1. After the water damage happened in our home, we replaced the small schoolhouse light that hung here with this pretty Arteriors light. I never set out to do this- this white Arteriors light used to hang in our breakfast nook. After the water damage we couldn't keep it in the kitchen. The water damage was obvious and ugly, leaving big brown and yellow spots from the water. But... it's just too pretty to throw away, even with a little discoloration, and it was still working! I was able to make it almost new again with some serious sanding and touching up.)

2. We replaced the striped jute Home Goods rug, which was cute and coastal, with this larger vintage rug that gives more character to the space.

The rug is from Megan Molten’s shop. If you like coastal decor you should take a peek at her work- it’s a treat for your eyeballs.

 

3. Lastly, I styled the shelves 946 more times until I was satisfied. I think it’s therapeutic!

Most of the items on the hallway bookshelves were collected overtime, so I don’t have any sources for you with this one, sadly!

What are your thoughts? Updating little nooks like this is always so satisfying!
