The Long {Long} Hallway

I have a long hallway in my house {about 17 feet long} that connects the original house with an addition we put on many years ago.  We stole some space from the original den to make this hallway.  Here is how it looked about two years ago, before we got the house ready to go on the market.

I had a family picture gallery here, which was really the perfect spot to do something like this.  With getting the house ready, I removed all these pictures {and we painted the walls}.  Then it looked like this.  For over a year.

I had this series of egg prints that were originally in my entry foyer and feeling that this long hallway needs something to entice people to walk through it {and to show a prospective buyer what you could put here}, I decided to hang them here.   There is no natural light here, so bear with me.

Using the areas where the lights hit the wall, I hung my pictures.  Now it looks like this.

So I get to enjoy my egg prints again and it fills this area nicely.

The prints look perfect there! So funny how I never realized there was no natural light in the hallway. What planet have I been on?! =)

Hi Kathy! Wow! Looks great. I just love egg prints like those. Hanging them along that hallway showcases them almost as if they're in a gallery. Gives me an idea for my upstairs hall ;o)
