While we're talking about DIY projects in my kitchen, here's another one I'm pretty proud of - my "kitchen window" mirror. This window was part of the screen door that was original to our first house (so 1959ish) and when we replaced it, I insisted on keeping the window part since it was in pretty good shape and clipped out easily. Sure, it sat in the garage for a couple years, but I knew that one day, I'd have room to make it a focal point piece. Plus, I don't have a real window in my actual kitchen, so it's nice to pretend.
Then sprayed the back of the glass with Krylon looking glass spray paint. This is what gives the regular windows the antique glass finish.
Next, I taped off the glass and put a fresh coat of white paint on it. I didn't worry about it being perfect, because I wanted it to have an antique feel.
Then, it waited for Mike to figure out how to hang it...
And lastly, I found the perfect wreath for the middle. I plan to change it out seasonally or whenever inspiration strikes.
