The mirror and chair belonged to my Granny. It has been passed down several generations. While I love both, I was craving something lighter and brighter. Don't worry, both will find a new home in another room in our house.
I saw this table (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00105064) on an episode of Nate and knew I had to have it! I loved the glass top! I knew I wanted to add light to this area as well, and found a great lamp while shopping for the table. I love that it has a dimmer switch, so I can control the amount of light depending on time of day and my mood. I picked up a couple accessories, and created some Word Art using Wordle (thanks Cassie). The only thing missing was a new mirror. One that would suit the space. I found this one at Lowes...
But, I wasn't loving the color...not light, bright and airy! So, what is the Queen of Spray Paint to do? Why make a trip to Home Depot to purchase Rustoleum's Plastic Primer and White Laquer spray paint. A couple coats of each later and ...this is how the entryway turned out~
I am loving the new look! Light, bright, cheerful, and airy. And, less fussy! I am so thrilled with how this turned out that I am looking for ways to lighten other areas of our home as well.
I hope to have a couple of projects complete this week, and can't wait to share them with you!
