Here is a great way to spice up that blah hallway. I painted mine a pastel blue and then did the faux painting techinque with sponges dipped in a lavender and pale aqua. At the top the hallway I added a famous quote from Helen Keller about the essentials to a happy life. Quotes can be found lots of places on the internet and all you have to do is find one that fits you and your life.

I have a drab hallway with 4 bedroom doors. The kids have drawn on them with black marker. I'm looking for inexpensive ideas to decorate them that will cover up the marker and make the hallway look more interesting and a bit more bright. Thanks for any ideas you come up with.

My daughter used chalkboard paint that is available at Wal-mart or any building supply store, either in green or black, to paint the door to her room. She was then able to use chalk to draw pictures, write herself notes, etc. She can clean the door with a wet cloth and start over anytime she likes.

Rice paper is also very nice, and comes in many colors and textures. Look for a specialty paper store or art store. I also have some sliding doors with ugly, round, concave, brass-colored door pulls inset into them. A friend suggested painting them white and them painting tiny scenes inside. You could also glue a tiny cut-out scene inside. Then paint over with polyurethane to protect from all the wear and tear.
