mirror, mirror on the wall

i have a few little DIY projects for the kitchen walls that i've been working on and wanted to share.

and yes - one of them is a mirror.

i found this gold mirror at my grandmothers a few months back.  she is a gold mine for old stuff in good condition.  and if it's upstairs, it's probably fair game.

so, i brought it home and thought through where the best place for it would be.  once i figured out the best place, i would be able to figure out what color i wanted to spray it.

i finally decided on the kitchen.  the only wall that has anything on it is the wall of photos.  the walls are kind of lacking in decor. 

here's what the mirror looked like when i found it.

i forgot to take a picture with the mirror in it...

and here she is with a fresh coat of paint

awesome huh?  well, not picture of me, but the mirror it's self.  i love stuff like this!  and i love the transformation just a simple coat of spray paint can accomplish!

the back door is pretty much directly across from the mirror and it's the door we use all the time.  the mirror is in the perfect spot for a last minute hair check.  =)

i also wanted to add something to another wall in the kitchen.

this one.  the one to the right of the window.

i don't really have a lot of the blue i've used through out the kitchen on this side of the room.  the blue of that little table.

the other day i was at target and ran across these plates.

.89 cents for the big ones, .78 cents for the little ones.  i kind of fell in love with them.  had to have them. but i didn't want them to just sit in a cabinet...

so, i decided to hang them.  bring in my blue, and now i would get to look at these awesome plates all the time.

so, a little DIY was in order.

i had the hubs pic up some little ring hangers for pictures at home depot.  then, we gorrilla glued them to the back of the plates.

24 hours later, the glue had had plenty of time to dry and they were ready to hang.

i love them!  simple, cheap and i think they look great.  just what i was looking for!

that's it!  just a little spruce up for the kitchen walls.

on a side note, i've been feeling a craft urge lately.  hopefully i'll have some cute stuff to share soon.

have a good monday friends!
