FAUX BRICK & A PASTA STRAINER TO BRIGHTEN UP A WINDOW I SPEND ALLOT OF TIME AT
Hi there, so glad you could stop on in today so I can share my new look of a kitchen window. Here it has black paint that surrounds the window and also a vintage mirror frame that just happen to fit nicely for interest. But bye bye boring window........
You know how it is when you have to spend a good amount of time washing dishes you need alittle something nice to look at.
Seeing that the wall was black I used the same method as the dining room backsplash, a sponge with the keywest greenish color , white and just stamped the sponge once it was dry I gave it a wash of white.
I had an old pasta strainer so I thought I would hang it over the exsisting globe light.
Aut oh !! you can see the pots on the stove.....chicken parmesan tonight with a side of pasta and salad. I bought these sconces at the thrift store they just seem to fit here well.
I just love a decorated window... a simple white eyelet valance for now. Can't wait to decorate the window for Christmas. If you check back on some earlier posts this window has seen it all!
I sure do love brick these days , when I am watching tv I am sure to notice all the brick.
Who knew a pasta strainer would throw off such a beautiful hint of light?
Don't like your window? give it a bit of personality!
