Good morning! I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend, enjoyed the nice weather and spent some quality time with family and friends!
Here are a couple of minor project updates.
First, I painted this very old mirror that I found at a consignment shop for $15. I did like the gold, but it needed some help and didn't quite match my home.
Finally, my bare walls are getting a little dressed up. Hopefully, someday in the near future this wing back chair will have a nice white twill chair cover with a ruffle, but I need to find a good and inexpensive seamstress in the area.
a little detail...
I also needed to transform these brass knobs to match the rest of the brushed nickel knobs and door handles that we have recently updated. I have found that using the Valspar primer combined with the Valspar metallic spray paints works wonders for painting metals; in my opinion, the primer is key for staying power.
First, I primed.
Then, I painted.
Last, I put them back on the closet doors they came from...see how they look practically the same as the brushed nickel door knob? Cool, right?
Last project, I promise.
I had this old pine bench. It is purely decorative as it is really not sturdy enough for storage; so, I painted it, distressed it, and put it in a little corner by the stairs at the end of our long entryway. I'm happy with how this project turned out; especially, for $0!
I really wish I had taken a "before" picture of this bench so you could see the comparison! But, trust me, this is a big improvement. I'm working on the decor on the bench...I'm thinking some burlap pillow covers with a little decorative fabric paint and a stack of pretty old books.
