My Creative Space



This week, my creative space is my hallway. For those of you that have followed my progress with my welcome wall and telephone table, will know that I've been procrastinating. I'm happy to report, I'm almost finished - I just have the handles to do. And yes, I did say I was just going to re-stain it but we painted it white instead. I recovered the seat with a lovely green fabric and white polka dots.




If you look closely, you'll see the most adorable little owl on the telephone seat. It was made for my 6 year old by my very talented and gorgeous friend, Mel at Little Ted Canvas. Hooty, as he is referred to, sits on the seat, looking at the front door, waiting patiently for the arrival of my little girl on her return from school each day.




In addition to the telephone table makeover, I've been playing around with a few vintage pieces that my mum handed down to me recently. My hallway is now full of colour and fun. I love walking in the front door to be greeted by my creative little nook.

Oh, and if you're looking for some fun to be had on Saturday, check out my Handmade Christmas Challenge meme...starts this Saturday. Hope you can join in!

It's looking good, the spotty green fabric with the white looks clean and crisp, really lovely. Very cute how Hooty sits waiting patiently for your little girl to arrive home:) xo

In my head I have a welcome wall (it's been started)but in reality our hall is really just a dumping ground for school bags, shoes & the like.

Your wall looks lovely.

Your space looks great, and you are so lucky to have such a wide, light hallway! Hootie is the best!

I'm so not in love with my hallway, you've inspired me to make an effort!! The bedroom hall way has a study nook, always pretty neat & fun there but the hall/ entrance, no sparkle. Love Posie
