Entry Mirror Update
|March 3, 2011||Posted by Jessie under Before and After, Paint|
After adding our board and batten treatment to the entry, my mirror just sort of faded to the background. I had painted it and hung it in the entry before we decided on wall colors for that area and turns out I know what I like because the color I created for the mirror originally (by mixing a few colors) ended up being almost the exact color of our board and batten color. I figured white would make the most sense in an overhaul because that is clearly our color scheme here-blue/gray and white. I left the inner decorative edge the blue/gray color to keep the contrast.
But after painting Tuesday night, I decided I wasn’t really in love with the white either. It seemed too matchy matchy and not rustic enough. So I pulled out the old paint from our dining room (next to the entry) and did a couple thin coats of that over top which kept that driftwood look I like (similar to the coat hanger).
Such a nice place to great guests. Who wants to come over?
