Moving along in smaller projects for our kitchen, this time I re-painted the vintage mirror that hangs under our kitchen cabinets, directly above our sink.
I am working towards even more neutrals in our home and last year painted our main floor in white and greys (BM Simply White and Revere Pewter, plus a Gray Owl half bath.) I am also working on adding in more wood tones and texture.
This is the mirror the first time I painted it in a light turquoise. While I love turquoise/aqua and blues, I have discovered that I prefer them in easily removable seasonal accents. For Fall, Christmas and our long winter I like a neutral base of whites, greys and black. Being over the sink, the mirror with all its detail needed to repainted. Cleaning just wouldn't cut it any more. I used a medium grey spray paint/primer with a darker grey DecoArt Americana Decor Chalky Finish in Yesteryear over top and then waxed it. Still deciding if I should use a dark wax.
On Monday I shared the big pine chalkboard I made for this same kitchen wall (in the eat-in area.) Other projects in the near future include building the sideboard I mentioned in that post and changing (or spray painting) our brass knobs to black. I also need to either freshen the paint on the backsplash or put up some beadboard (either one in Simply White.) Our kitchen is 17 years old and while I would love a tile backsplash, at this point I will wait for tile until we can afford new counters or a kitchen redo. I like ticking little projects like this off my to do list. Thanks for visiting!
