Weekend Accomplished...

A couple weeks ago my husband and I did a few home improvement projects!!!

Our mission...replace towel fixtures/racks, new light, and something to disguise the ugly mirror that the previous owners mounted to the wall!!!

So we journey to the local home improvement store and pick up our supplies. They didn't have the right light fixture we replaced all the towel fixtures/racks in our guest bathroom from brass to brushed nickel (brass just isn't our style!). Next we replaced both faucets...yep from brass to brushed nickel! We have two left...the "lovely" light fixture that's way outdated! While picking up our supplies we searched for the right lighting and replacing that will take some searching. However, I did get a fantastic idea about the mirror and it has taken a couple weekends of painting each coat to cover the ugly gold! (Each coat has to try for at least 48 hours)...yesterday I added the finishing touches...a little Silver Ultra Metallics™ mixed with the black gloss paint that was I used to paint the entire mirror with...I think it looks pretty nice!

The photos just don't do it justice!!! Next we are scraping the "popcorn" coating from our celings...I will post those pics once it's done! I am sooo excited!

Happy Monday!

Artfully Yours,
