After installing a new light fixture in bedroom, hallway light doesnt work

I bought and hung a new light fixture in a bedroom (a little chandelier), and everything was fine. it worked fine, everything else was still working fine. Then i changed out the 5 receptables and the 1 light switch in the bedroom. i changed them out because they were an almond off white color and i wanted a plain white look. so i replaced them with new white ones. after doing so, the bedroom chandelier still worked with the one light switch that controls it, but the hallway light that is on the same circuit as the bedroom light and receptables is not working. it is not turning on. it was two switches that control it. one at either end of the hallway.

One of your connections is loose or wrong.

Did you change either of those?

You probably left a wire left unhooked/loose or attached to the wrong place. Since we can't see how you wired anything you'll need to do the debugging but we can help with advice. Good pictures showing the wiring and how it's connected is always helpful.
