I want to thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post! I appreciate so much your interest in my kitchen remodel and the GREAT suggestions as to what would look good on the new white tongue -and- groove paneled wall. I actually had some of the same ideas like putting one of those great big oversized clocks I've been seeing on decorating blogs. For sure all of your suggestions would've looked wonderful....
so what did I decide? Well as some of you may remember my favorite place to shop sometimes is my own dungeon of a basement. I have been purging down there the past couple of years but there's a few pieces I've been hanging on to.... you know... in case I might need them some day...LOL!
So after digging about down there I came up with this old and HEAVY beveled glass mirror. It has a wonderful frame with a little tinge of that antique brass that goes nicely with the new hardware on the cupboards. After a little sweet talking to the Mr. about my idea of hanging this very heavy mirror on that new wall... which required drilling a hole and putting in a plastic anchor, he gave in to my plea's!
I like the way it reflects the scene from the windows on the opposite wall! It almost makes it feel like there's a window now on this wall!
I am still playing around with the accessories. I do like a cleaner, less cluttered look and want to keep this space clear for food prep.
So what do you think? So far I'm loving it! An added benefit to shopping in your own basement is the price!
Yes... it doesn't get much better than free!!
It sounds like a lovely weekend coming up here in the north land!
Hope yours is lovely as well!
