Here are some great shabby chic hallways, I hope you'll like them! :)
The re purposed paddle is such an excellent idea. But, don't get stuck on it, there are plenty other things to use the same way. Drifted wood, old wooden planks, old headboards... come to mind.
Simple and clear is also very nice, have a look at this hallway. :)
Combination of white walls and furniture with natural wooden details such as baskets make this space look so calm and natural. (And look at how cute this little guy is!)
This is not a hallway (although it could be!), but a very nice detail. Decor on walls is shabby and so, so cheap (old newspapers!).
