#Win! Hallway Decoration & Declutter Project Begins & #Giveaway

I mentioned to my husband that the decorator is available next month and it would be a good time to begin working on our hallway.  As it’s the entrance to the home, it makes a big first impression and our hallway is really falling short of the mark at the moment.  As you might already know from this post, my OH isn’t a fan of DIY, so when he agreed to get some work done in the house, I ceased the moment.

A previous owner of our house decided to paint the banisters with emulsion paint.  I have to stress now that you should never decorate a banister with emulsion point because here’s what happens.  Because the paint is soft and porous all the grease and dirt gets sucked into it.  No matter how much you clean it, it will never come out and a major feature of the hallway will always look dirty.

We had thought about having the paint removed entirely and having the wood varnished but after a chat with the decorator, we’ve decided against it.  The amount of work it would take to remove all the paint from the banister would put the cost of the labour up considerably so we are going to stick with having the banister and skirting boards glossed instead.

The wallpaper is looking tired too, and coming away from the wall in places so I’m in favour of having it replaced and starting again.  I suspect that the walls will not be in a particularly good state once they have been stripped so they will be wallpapered again and painted to freshen up the space.

We are also looking to add some features to the hallway that help us keep on top of the clutter that seems to accumulate, and we have kicked things off with a new shoe rack from Songmics. Our current shoe rack is far too large and has completely lost the ability to stand up straight.  It needs to go to the tip sooner rather than later.

We are hoping with a smaller set of shelves to put our shoes on that it will be more sturdy and look tidier.   I think it will help us to keep our shoe collection under control too.  I’ve recently donated a lot of shoes the girls have grown out of to the Sal’s Shoes project as we have a collection bin at school.  I also think it’s time to ditch a few old pairs of trainers as this project gets under way.

3 tier shoe rack review

Seeing as our hallway is quite small I’m keen to keep the clutter under control.  The bamboo shoe rack was so easy to put up and already looks at home in the space I’ve got ear marked for it.  Here’s a few of the other reasons I love the new addition to our hallway:

  • Easy to clean
  • Made from environmentally friendly materials
  • Three shelves to hold nine pairs of shoes
  • Stylish design

As well as keeping the shoes under control, it seems the coats and bags we have in the house have a mind of their own too.  We have already applied the ‘one in, one out’ rule to most things, but for some reason not to bags.  This means there will be a huge clear out before the decorator arrives to get on top of this.

My husband also has this rather annoying habit of putting his coat on the end of the banister at the bottom of the stairs.  His large winter coat takes up half the hallway and I often have to relocate it to the cupboard under the stairs.  While the decorator is in, he won’t be able to do this anymore so hopefully it will help him break the habit. If that doesn’t work I can see the next piece of furniture I’ll be investing in will be a coat stand.

    January 26, 2018 / 9:50 pm

    Shoes seem to get kicked off all over in my home, which I’m not happy about, and have repeatedly asked them to be taken off in the hallway, this would be prefect as they would have somewhere to put their shoes, which might encourage them to take them off where they’re asked!

  17. Margaret Gallagher
    January 26, 2018 / 10:00 pm

    Love to place in my hallway – instead of kicking off their shoes all over the show – we’ll be neat and tidy

    January 27, 2018 / 7:09 am

    Many thanks for this great review and giveaway. I can totally relate to your post because my husband is a chronic compulsive hoarder and hates to declutter, always saying he will ‘do it in my time! Which doesn’t materialise. I am starting on the hallway too as it is the first thing people notice and we have way too many shoes between the three of us, thanks so much for mentioning the Sal’s School Project, I had not heard about this charity before so will suggest this to him. Thanks so much, your post was motivating!

  24. Michelle Betts

    My hallway is an embarrassment. I don’t have a hall cupboard so shoes are piled on top of each other and coats hung over the stair rail. Anything that helps tidy some of it would be very welcome.

    So many shoes and boots every where! I have 3 teenagers and one young child! It’s a mad house! Would be nice to have another shoe rack in the corner near my back patio doors.

    This is cool, I’ve got so many running shoes in my hallway, could do with something like this to get back some space.
